Aaron There are no referee updates for Aaron.
“I don’t know anything,” the Yankees manager told reporters Tuesday at the winter meetings in San Diego. “I certainly don’t.”
He is not alone.
As the free agent market heats up again, here are a few clues as to what the referee is thinking. The slugging quarterback has signed a $360 million deal with his hometown Giants, The Post’s Jon Heyman reported Tuesday. Last week, ESPN’s Jeff Passan reported on the Yankees’ eight-year, $300 million offer to their star.
“We haven’t heard anything,” Boone said, adding that the question was directed to GM Brian Cashman.
Earlier Tuesday, Judge was named the Time Player of the Year and opened up a bit about his free agency process — even criticizing his contract negotiations with the Bombers last season. The Yankees announced before the season that they had offered the future AL home run king a seven-year, $213 million contract, but Judge declined.
“We said, ‘Hey, let’s leave it between us,'” Judge said. “I’m a little disappointed when the numbers come out. I understand it’s a negotiating tactic. Put the pressure on me. Turn the fans against me, turn the media against me. I didn’t like that part of it.”
