I think the Giants will do 10 years 480 to 500 million.  Judge taking a long time to decide. Just a feeling I have. Sounds crazy but look at what 2 old pitcers are getting. Judge says the booing didnt bother him.  I think it did.  If I was him, it would bother me. He goes to the Giants and screw NY

That's not going to happen.

Turner signing changes market?

Turner is 14 months younger than Judge and his new 11-year contract takes him through his age-40 season. A nine-year contract for Judge would take him him through his age-39 season. Could Turner's contract with the Phillies push Judge to seek a 10th year? Here's how long some star players with long-term contracts are signed:

  • Through age 40: Trea Turner
  • Through age 39: Mookie Betts
  • Through age 38: Bryce Harper, Mike Trout
  • Through age 37: Gerrit Cole, Francisco Lindor, Corey Seager, Giancarlo Stanton
  • Through age 36: Nolan Arenado
  • Through age 35: Manny Machado, Fernando Tatis Jr.

An eight-year deal would take Judge through age 38 like Harper and Trout. A nine-year deal would take him through age 39 like Betts. Does he now push for that 10th year to take him through age 40 like Turner? Given the season Judge had, I don't think asking for a 10th year would be unreasonable. That doesn't mean he'll get it, but why not ask?

And for the Giants and Yankees, can they afford to lose out on Judge over a 10th year covering 2032? That's so far away! We have no idea what the sport will look like then, and it's very likely the folks current running baseball operations won't be running baseball operations then. Judge's free agency could be decided when a team caves and gives him that 10th year, even if it's just an option.
