Aaron Judge flew into San Diego at the last minute to decide among three teams: the New York Yankees, the San Francisco Giants and the San Diego Padres. The Yankees bumped their offer to nine years and $360 million, and in the end, Judge decided he wanted to remain a Yankee.— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) December 7, 2022 What a bet by Judge man. Only other player I can think of betting on himself and being rewarded in a huge way (which still falls drastically short) was Flacco and that Super Bowl run he had with the Ravens. 130 million dollar poker win. Nicely done.
