Calculating Aaron Judge’s Mega Free Agent Contract Value
Judge is likely to win the American League MVP. He’s set to pass Roger Maris’ single-season home run total of 61, maybe before the week is up.
With such gaudy numbers, his payday will be one of the highest of all time. But by what measure?
As noted, Judge bet on himself by turning down a seven-year, $213.5 million extension offered to him by the Yankees in Spring Training this year.
According to Jon Heyman of the NY Post, he countered with an offer at nine or 10 years at $36 million AAV for up to $360 million.
