Tampering is bad, of course. But when it comes to players trying to recruit other players, sign us up. Unfortunately for Aaron Judge, the Yankees aren’t on board with his approach.
On Wednesday, reports would surfaceA�about Judge’s pitch to Baltimore’s Manny Machado.
“Adding him to our lineup that we already got would be something special. … I told him he’d look good in pinstripes.”
Because of this, though, MLB would reach out to the Yankees.
“We have been in contact with the Yankees. They communicated to us that Mr. Judge’s off-the-cuff comments were not appropriate and not authorized by the club. They will speak to him to make sure that this does not happen again.”
And while Machado is still with the Orioles, he will likely hit free agency next offseason. Of course, he’s not the only big name.
