The Aaron Judge saga is finally over. He’ll return to the Bronx, where he’ll likely be a Yankee for life because he’ll have nine years and $360 million left. His annual average of $40 million is the most for a player in baseball history. After hitting 62 home runs to become the single-season AL home run leader, Judge entered the record books with his new contract.

We bring you a new episode of The Show podcast with Joel Sherman and Jon Heyman from the winter meetings to discuss the umpire’s contract, Justin Verlander with the Mets, Jacob deGrom with the Rangers and all things happening in MLB free agency. in San Diego.

The Show Podcast with Joel Sherman and Jon Heyman:

  • BACK TO YANKS: Nine years, $360 million is fair for his season and career with the Yankees. There isn’t a better position player. The Padres came out of nowhere and demanded about $400 million for Judge, but the star outfielder wanted to stay with the Yankees. Credit to Hal Steinbrenner for putting in the money and to the Yankees for making it happen. Where do the Yankees go in free agency?
  • DeGROM and VERLANDER: $185 million was unbelievable for Jacob deGrom to sign with the Rangers. A good spot was signed by the Mets with Justin Verlander. The Mets now have six Cy Young Awards in the rotation in Verlander and Max Scherzer. Steve Cohen is going to dig deep into the luxury tax to assemble the best team. The Mets will likely sign another starting pitcher.
  • TREA TURNER/NL EAST: Turner will receive an 11-year, $300 million contract. He took less money to sign with the Phillies and $42 million more to go to the Padres. The NL East is going to be very competitive.
  • CONTRERAS/NIMMO: Joel hates the Willson Contreras contract with the Cardinals. Will the Mets get Brandon Nimmo back or will he sign elsewhere? What kind of deals do they like? What do they hate?
