New York Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge is confident the Yankees will eventually find their groove and start playing much better. The Yankees, who entered this season with World Series aspirations, dropped two of three to the Baltimore Orioles.
Yankees offense hasn't gotten off to an impressive start to the year and on Sunday they were shutout as the Orioles claimed a 5-0 victory. “Without a doubt,” Judge said after the Yankees lost 5-0 to the Orioles, per The Post.
Yankees manager Aaron Boone agreed with Judge, insisting it's just a matter of time the team finds its groove on the offensive side. “We’re made up differently. I’ll bet on the track record of a few of our guys.
I believe there’s a good reason to think a couple of guys that had down years by their standards [in 2021], will return to what we expect," Boone said.
Judge unlikely to sign with the New York Mets
Judge, who is considered as one of the best players on his position, didn't reach an agreement on an extension with the Yankees before Opening Day.
Judge is set to become a free agent next offseason and some wondered if Judge could stay in New York but head to Queen's and play for the Mets. “He wouldn’t do that to the Yankees,” one source told The Post.
After Judge and the Yankees failed to agree on an extension, Judge voiced his disappointment. "I'm just disappointed because I have been vocal about wanting to be a Yankee for life," Judge said. "I want to bring a championship back to New York.
I want to do it for the fans here. This is home for me. And I'm not getting that done right now. It stinks, but I got a job to do on the field. I got to shift my focus to that now and play some ball."
