Aaron Judge posted a video on Saturday of himself celebrating after becoming the American League MVP. In the video, he shouted out the Yankees in a way that didn’t exactly look forward or backward.

“What a crazy week it’s been!” Judge wrote on his Instagram, “This is a remarkable honor that could not have been possible without my family and friends who pushed me day in and day out. God has blessed me with so many great teammates and opportunities over the years that I will never take for granted! Thank you to the fans and the city of New York- it has been a privilege to earn this award in pinstripes.”

Was Aaron Judge trying to send a message? It looks vague and mysterious and is likely to tickle Yankees fans at a time when the slugger is still a free agent and baseball doesn’t start again until February.

With the Giants are after Aaron Judge and ready to outbid the Yankees, the question lingers if the power hitter will play the next season in pinstripes.

Meanwhile, Jon Heyman of the New York Post tweeted late Friday night that the Dodgers were expected to go after Judge and they had freed up a lot of salary by not re-signing Cody Bellinger.

Friday night, he surprised fans at the MLB store in the middle of New York City while on late-night TV with Jimmy Fallon. He had a gala for his All Rise Foundation in Manhattan that night. Many of his current and old Yankees teammates came to the event. The team’s general manager, Brian Cashman, was also there.

The Baseball Writers Association of America named Aaron Judge AL MVP on Thursday. Around the same time, Cashman said that the Yankees had made Judge a new deal since he turned down their $213.5 million, seven-year deal during spring training. Aaron Judge, meanwhile, said on Thursday that he wanted to play for a winner the most.

“I want to win,” Aaron Judge told, “I’ve come pretty close with the Yankees. We’ve been one game away from a World Series to getting kicked out in the Wild Card to the ALCS and the ALDS. All around the board. The most important thing is that I want to be in a winning culture and be on a team that’s committed to winning. Not only for the remainder of my playing career but I want a legacy to kind of live on within an organization. So, first and foremost, it’s just about being in winning culture and a winning future.”

Hal Steinbrenner, the owner of the Yankees, has already hinted that he had talked to Aaron Judge several times and had a one-on-one meeting with him. Both Steinbrenner and Judge said that the talks were “good.”
