The Chicago White Sox are a team that is going to be looking to make some improvements during the offseason. This 2022 season has been a disaster for them in a year that started with World Series-level expectations. Now, it is time to move forward.
Someone that is not having a disaster season is Aaron Judge. He is going to win the American League MVP as he is having a record-breaking season that could lead t a Triple Crown.
After this 2022 season, Judge is a free agent that is free to go wherever he wants. He has not publicly committed to the New York Yankees which suggests that there is a chance that he wants out.
In the unlikely situation that the White Sox land him, there are a lot of different contracts that he can be offered. These are the three most likely:
1. The Max – 10 years/$350 million
The Chicago White Sox should consider signing Aaron Judge for a lot of money.
Of course, the easiest way to bring in a superstar like Aaron Judge is to offer them lots of money and term. If the White Sox offered him a ten-year contract worth 350 million dollars, it would be hard for him to turn it down as he is in his 30s.
The White Sox have never given a player a contract worth 100 million so obviously, a deal like this would be record-breaking in a lot of ways. The highest paid contract in the history of the team is Yasmani Grandal’s at 74 million.
A few years ago, the White Sox were in on giving a lot of money to Manny Machado and Bryce Harper and neither of them chose to go there. they have shown that they have seats at the table but it is becoming not good enough anymore. It would be great to see them make a deal like this.
