    The 2018 Super Official Aaron Judge Performance Thread

    Trailer is out for MLB The Show 18 and Judge is on the cover and heavily featured throughout the trailer. Game even includes The Judge's Chambers. I think you guys will get a kick out of this, plus there is something fun at the end.

    Funny that it shows Beckham at SS for the Orioles - I guess MLB did not get the Machado "I want to play SS" memo.

    Good trailer, although the uni on Babe looks too current.

    Bonkers. That's basically a top-5/7 player.

    Re: The 2018 Super Official Aaron Judge Performance Thread

    So I have been thinking a little bit about what exactly the Yankees might do as far as locking up Aaron Judge long-term. It is a bit of a unique situation and as we all know he is a unique player. He is a bit old for a rookie and won't be a free agent until 2023 when he will be 31 years old.

    We don't know what the economics of baseball are going to look like down the line, but they will have Judge through all of his prime years and when he would up for a new contract the Yankees would be looking at paying him big money for his decline years.

    Putting a price tag on him right now is really challenging and I have no idea how the Yankees are going to handle the situation. I'm curious to hear what some of you guys/gals think the Yankees should do.

    I’m thinking 8/130 is the right offer (5/50 guaranteed prior to option years):

    2018-19 he’s going to earn the league minimum
    2020,21,22 - you figure he’s going to set some arbitration records. Let’s settle those years for $55M (12/18/25).
    You then have 3 team options at 25/25/25

    I think this is an offer that works for the team and the player.

    Re: The 2018 Super Official Aaron Judge Performance Thread

    We were hypothesizing about this two weeks ago and I came to the conclusion that it was somewhere between 8/$148 and 10/$208M if the deal was signed this offseason.

    I think this puts too much risk on the Yankees side, considering Judge has only done this once and didn’t have the mL career that Trout (the main comp for your offer) had. 8/148 is really 6/147, considering he’s getting around $1m over the next two years combined.

    EDIT: I realize that 8/148 is not THAT much different than my offer of 8/130

    Here was my breakdown on it:

    I think that's what it'd take. I'm not sure I'd do it right now.

    Thanks for linking to your breakdown, I had missed it.

    Does it makes sense to negotiate with him now though? What if he settles in as a .250, 40 HR guy (a younger Mark Trumbo with a better OBP.) The Yankees run the risk of getting caught paying for him off a peak year. Though maybe you do it anyway because you are buying the peak years (The Rick Porcello Theory)

    A few posts above the one I linked to in that thread I said the reason I'd do it isn't to save money in the long run or to buy the peak years, but instead to buy the peak years at a below market AAV. If Judge really is the guy we saw last year, having his peak years at $20M AAV is pretty damn valuable. But it only works when you're balancing the FA years of the contract with pre-arb years. The more of those min years you use up the less attractive the extension becomes from an AAV perspective, and the less enticing the overall concept of guaranteeing money to a young player as "old" as Judge is, becomes.

    As you noted earlier, he's going to hit FA in his 30s, so the Yankees are already guaranteed his theoretical prime years without having to be on the hook for any risk.

    FYI, Judge will also be card # 1 in the Topps 2018 baseball card set to honor his record setting 2017 season.

    you don't. you let him finish his control years at age 31yo and don't pay for the down turn.

    fun fact: Ken Griffey Jr’s most coveted rookie card is card number 1 in 1989 for Upper Deck’s first year of producing cards.
