What kind of contract do you guys think Judge is going to command? There seems to be a lot of teams locking up players for extended years and so much money. Aaron Judge is 30 though and those guys getting the big contracts are younger. Thoughts?

Corey Seager got 10 years 325 Mil and he is 28
Manny Machado got 10 years 300 Mil and he is 30

I can see why he didn't take the 260 and this season Judge is playing out of his mind. He is definitely playing for a contract and you're right, if he follows the money, he is out of NY. Who could afford him though? Especially if the Angels let Ohtani on the open market. No way the Dodgers could keep affording these players. I will keep my dreams alive and cross my fingers the Mariners land Judge or Ohtani lol.

I would give him a Million dollars a homer contract. For 10 years. If he goes on the IL or if he sucks and only hits 5 homers, then he makes 5 million dollars for the year. and so, on.

35 million a year AAV, 8-10 years

Nothing to do with the Yankees but because of the contract talks.... Julio Rodriguez, who has play just over half the season in the majors for the M's, is about to sign a 15 year, 210m guaranteed contract... What in the world.... didn't the Braves just sign Harris to 100m for 10 years? I get the hype and production... but... I have never heard of the Mariners putting up a contract like this.. for anyone... ever... Would you bank everything nearly a full season of production?

Teams will start doing this and it'll burn them more than it benefits. What's sad and disgusting is, it's the fans that will wind up footing the bill for the failures.

8 years, $72 million for Harris - Basically buys out his 3 arb years and two years of Free Agency for $70 million ($14 AAV). If he sticks to the production he's putting up this year his arbitration years end up looking like $10, $15, $20 million so they bought two years of free agency for $25 million. That's a good, not great, deal for the Braves, gives Harris financial security right up front, and allows him to be a free agent at 29 if they don't pick up his club options ($15 million in 2031 and $20 million in 2032 or $10 million in buyouts) and hit it big on another contract if he produces.

Rodriguez's contract isn't necessarily 15 years. It could be as short as 8/$120. If Rodriguez simply maintains the production he has put up this season they got a steal. 8 years/$120 million ($15 million AAV) is a very cheap deal for a .280/.340/.550 30/30 player. If he turns into the perennial MVP candidate they think he will be then it's still a great deal looking long term, whether Seattle decides to opt in to the club option after 2028 or lets it convert to a player option. If they choose to convert it to a player option after 2028 there's a likelihood he walks after 2030 but they would have still gotten 8 years of top production for relative peanuts.

Looks like the Julio deal is 12 years/210million (17.5 million AAV) guaranteed and could go up to 470 million. Hope he stays healthy.
