Aaron Judge caught on tape in San Francisco where he is expected to face Giants

MLB’s most wanted free agent, Aaron Judge, has landed in San Francisco.

A video captured Judge upon arrival where he made an interesting comment about what he does in town.

“What family and friends visit, that’s about it. That’s about it,” he winked at the camera.

Judge is from Linden, California, which is about 90 minutes from San Francisco, where the Giants play, a team tied for free with the 2022 AL MVP. Judge also grew up a Giants fan during his days terrorizing baseball teams while playing for Linden High School and Fresno State, eventually being selected by the New York Yankees in the first round of the 2013 MLB Draft.

So what exactly do Judge’s “friends and family” have planned?

“We’ve got something,” he said, laughing.

Looking for the best of the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL West, the Giants want to impress, and there would be nothing better than a homegrown product like Judge. And while there are many other suitors, including the Yankees, San Fran has money to spend.

According to Spotrac, the Giants currently have the 14th highest payroll in MLB at $95.95 million.

On the other hand, teams like the Yankees and New York Mets are at the top of the pack and are still willing to open their checkbook for Judge’s services.

Anthony Rizzo, who recently re-signed with the Yankees on a two-year contract, lobbied his clubhouse friend in Judge to move back to the Bronx.

“I hope Judge stays for the sake of the game,” Rizzo said Wednesday, “because you see a lot of franchise icons not getting what they deserve for the team they’ve worked so hard for.”

In fact, Rizzo has said that Judge deserves to be the next Yankees captain if he re-signs.

But the offers will be high after his MVP campaign, and it could come down to who outbids the rest of the field. Will the Giants rise? Will the Yankees, Mets or maybe even the Dodgers flex their financial muscles?

Judge and his team will find out in the coming weeks how much each team is willing to expand their payroll.

The 6-foot-7 slugger was named AL MVP last Thursday, receiving all but two of the first place votes after a season in which he set the American League record for most home runs in a single season with 62.

His 111 walks were American League tops, and his .311 batting average ranked second in the AL, keeping him in the Triple Crown conversation until the last few days of the season.
