On Tuesday, slugger and home run record holder Aaron Judge reaffirmed the notion that he will spend the rest of his career with the New York Yankees.

The power hitter is going to be a free agent at the end of the season. There is a possibility that Tuesday would be the last game he plays for the New York Yankees. Given that the Yankees held a 4-1 advantage going into the bottom of the third, it would take a significant effort to blow the lead at this point.

Aaron Judge has indicated that he will explore his options in the market as a free agent while simultaneously making it clear that he would prefer to remain with the Yankees.

After hitting a solo home run in the second inning of Game 5 of the American League Division Series which gave a 4-0 lead for the Yankees on Tuesday, he conveyed to the Yankee fans in a very clear way that he was enjoying playing for the Yankees in the Bronx.

He walked up to a camera in the dugout and kissed the Yankee logo on his chest.

Before Opening Day, Aaron Judge said no to a contract offering him $230.5 million over eight years of play. After that, he hit 62 home runs, which was enough to break the AL record for most home runs in a season, led MLB in RBIs and OPS, and remained in the running for the Triple Crown until the final days of the season.

Aaron Judge is now the most favorite to win the AL Most Valuable Player award.

However, it is becoming abundantly clear that he wants that major deal, which has the potential to break records, to be with his current team.

Aaron Judge has just recently sent out signals indicating that he will continue to reside in New York. Before a game one month ago, he was seen wearing a sweatshirt with the phrase “NEW YORK OR NOWHERE” printed on it.

The American League Championship Series (ALCS) will begin on Wednesday night with the Yankees taking on the Houston Astros.

Will the Yankees break the bank to keep Aaron Judge? What do you think?
