The Chicago White Sox are looking for a right fielder in the long term and you have to wonder if Aaron Judge would ever be an option.
The Chicago White Sox are probably going to continue looking for a right-fielder after the 2020 season unless Nomar Mazara really turns out to be something special. They could go for Mookie Betts or George Springer which would be massive upgrades but what if they looked out east for someone? There are a lot of New York Yankees fans that like to joke with Boston Red Sox fans about the possibility of Mookie Betts joining their team.
The Yankees could realistically throw a ton of money at Mookie Betts once the 2020 nightmare is officially over. The Red Sox, of course, traded Betts to the Los Angeles Dodgers right before COVID-19 so you never know where his mind is at but chances are he will hit free agency. With all of the money that the league has lost, it is hard to see him getting as much as the Red Sox offered him in the offseason.
With that said, if any team could afford him, it would be the Yankees. If Betts did go to the Evil Empire, that would make Aaron Judge expendable. Aaron Judge would be a perfect fit as the right fielder of the White Sox in the short term and long term. He is only 28 years old so he will be an elite player for many more years to come.
Adding a piece like Aaron Judge would go a long way for this White Sox team. He has never won the World Series but he has been a part of some very deep playoff runs. He also knows how to become a superstar after being one of those prospects with very high potential. It would truly be something to see him come on over to the White Sox and mentor some of these kids who are in the same position as he was once in.
This is one of the most unlikely scenarios in terms of White Sox right-field play but it is certainly fun to think about. You never know what happens but Mookie Betts’ decision after this season could affect a whole lot of people.
