Maybe the Yankees should have given Aaron Judge everything he wanted prior to the season? Or maybe the lack of an extension has motivated the slugger to look like a total boss thus far.
With the Yankees red hot to start the season, the same can be said for Judge. He's hitting .315 thus far, with 14 dingers. Judge looks like the AL MVP right now and there's no doubt about that.
Judge is playing his way to a monster new contract and NY should try and make this happen as soon as possible. While they don't want to do that in the middle of the campaign, the longer they wait, the more anxiety there'll be for the fanbase that something will never get done.
