3. Mid-tier deal – 7 years – 300 million dollars – 3-year opt-out
The Chicago White Sox could work anything that Aaron Judge wanted in a deal.
The Chicago White Sox, if he is interested, should do whatever they can to bring in a player like Aaron Judge. If he wants money, term, options, or a free soda every day for the duration of the contract, they should do anything to make it happen.
That is why a deal that is some combination of all that is a possibility for the White Sox or whatever team goes for him. A deal for seven years and 300 million dollars with options after three years is something that would make a lot of sense for someone like Judge.
It would also make sense for the White Sox as they could potentially see him go if they aren’t a good team after a few more years. It is also tempting for Judge because there is term in case his play dips a little bit. Seven years long also means that he won’t hit his 40s on the deal.
Obviously, as mentioned already a few times, it is not likely that the White Sox make a move like this with their current ownership group. However, if there is a change there over the next year, anything is possible. No matter who it is, we just want to see the White Sox get better.
