Although the Yankees made it to the American League Championship Series. But they fell short in the ALCS, losing to the eventual World Series winners in the Houston Astros.

San Francisco Giants’ Joc Pederson tries to recruit Aaron Judge

Joc Pederson, an outfielder with the San Francisco Giants, has reportedly tried to recruit Aaron Judge. In an Instagram story that Pederson posted and Jomboy Media shared on Twitter, Pederson appears to be recruiting Judge. In the post, Pederson says “I got 99 problems…winning ain’t one 🏆🏆” referring to his two World Series titles.

Further in the post, Pederson said “We’re ready when you are 99” and tagged Judge in it. This is a not-so-subtle way of trying to get Judge to sign with the Giants. It makes sense though as Judge has been silent on where he might be signing. And that leaves the door open for any team to come in and make an offer.
