Any Kind Of Trade Involving Judge Is Ridiculous

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

I know the trade deadline is looming. And the Yankees record is well, in a word, ugly. So what do teams do when they think all hope is gone ahead of the trade deadline—They firesale. By now you are re-reading the headline and thinking, would the Yankees actually firesale Aaron Judge? Ridiculous, right? Yet, anything can happen and no one is safe. 

According to MLB Rumors, “The Braves could take advantage of the Yankees terrible time by throwing out an offer for All-Star outfielder Aaron Judge. Judge is one of the only good things about the Yankees this season. He’s batting .284/.379/.523 with an OPS of .902. He has 19 home runs.” 

Aaron Judge not only helped ease the pain of the retirement of Derek Jeter but he quickly became a fan favorite and some would say a franchise player. To even consider Judge as part of a firesale at the trade deadline is simply ridiculous. Giving up is even more disturbing.

“Among the Yankees’ issues is they aren’t one or two moves away from being a contending team — and they don’t have a ton to sell if they do change course. The biggest potential piece to move would be Aaron Judge, but trading a star in the prime of his career is not something that’s in the Yankees’ DNA — especially a star who has become the clear face of the franchise,” wrote the New York Post. Darn right it’s not in the Yankees’ DNA to trade a player like Judge! 

As the MLB Season cruises into midway, the Yankees are in a tough spot and not where anyone expected them to be. But that does not mean that they are giving up. And it certainly does not mean that they will give up Aaron Judge to get to the next level. That’s not the answer to their woes. Not sure what the next move is but you better believe it does not involve Judge.

      Sounds par for the course though if they can find a cheaper .170 hitter as a replacement.
