Aaron Judge: “It’s a failure”
This, without a doubt, set off the alarms for Captain Judge who appeared before the media to give his evaluation of the Yankees’ campaign, taking into account the high expectations behind the New York organization.
“If I’m not here standing in front of you after a championship, it’s a failure,” Judge confessed last Sunday. “After all the work you have done in the preseason, training, preparing, coming here every day, rain or shine to play a game, it is about bringing a title. That’s why we play. That is why I am here”.

In turn, the current MVP of the American League was clear about his perspective towards the changes that must be made internally in the team if it wants to aspire to the place it “should be.”
“That’s why I came back to New York with this group of guys, to build something and get New York back to where it’s supposed to be. When you don’t show up and produce and they throw you out like that in the regular season, that’s a big failure. We have a lot of work to do, a lot of internal conversations, a lot of things to solve,” he noted.
