While various suitors are lining up to see if they can pry Aaron Judge away from the New York Yankees, the superstar slugger has an offer on the table from the team he’s spent his entire career with until now.

Judge has hit the free agency market following this past record-breaking season with the Yankees, who would certainly welcome him back with open arms, though fans are certainly concerned about their chances of landing Judge. Since then, a bunch of teams entered the Judge sweepstakes with the San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers emerging as possibilities.

If the Yankees are going to lose Judge, however, they’re not going down without a fight. According to ESPN’s Jess Passan, the Bronx Bombers have an initial offer on the table for eight years and “in the neighborhood” of $300 million.

Eight years and $300 million would give Judge an Average Annual Value of $37.5 million, which would break the current record held by Mike Trout. There’s little doubt that Judge will own that record after he signs his next contract, but it’s just a question of whether or not New York’s offer remains the best one.

We’ll see if the Yankees are able to beat out the Giants, Dodgers, and others to retain Aaron Judge. But in the meantime, the MLB world had some interesting thoughts about the contract offer.
