Boston Red Sox

Losing Aaron Judge would hurt the New York Yankees no matter who he goes to. It would hurt even more if he went to the Boston Red Sox.

There had been a connection between Judge and the Red Sox before. A few years ago, a photo surfaced showing the Yankees’ outfielder wearing a Red Sox shirt, starting the rumor that he was a Boston fan before being drafted by the Yankees. It turned out that he received the gear from the family he was staying with during his time in the Cape Cod League and that he was actually a Giants fan in his youth.

That shirt could turn out to be a bit of foreshadowing. The Red Sox will have a large amount of money coming off the books after this season and will need another bat in the lineup as J.D. Martinez is scheduled to be a free agent.

Judge would be a major upgrade in the lineup and in the outfield. Although the Red Sox would be adding another righty bat in a lineup that is already very right handed, one could easily imagine him crushing balls over the Green Monster and peppering the wall with line drives. His presence could make a big difference in the Red Sox’s quest to win another title.

Losing Aaron Judge would be a major blow to the New York Yankees. Losing him to the Boston Red Sox would be even worse.
