During a two-day meeting earlier this week, the San Francisco Giants tried to dazzle MLB superstar Aaron Judge with their own star, but they decided to think outside the box. According to NBC Sportsthe organization hired Golden State Warriors superstar Steph Curry to remind Judge of the talent he could find in the neighborhood.

Judge, a California native, has spent his entire MLB career since 2016 with the New York Yankees. The four-time All-Star is much loved in the Bronx, but the team has not won a World Series title since 2009 and is currently exploring options.

It was the first known visit between Judge and a non-Yankee team, but there will be no shortage of offers for the reigning American League MVP. A source told NBC Sports that the Giants expect Judge to speak to other teams in the next few days. One team showing significant interest is the Los Angeles Dodgers.

California certainly has great weather and lots of stars, but that doesn’t mean Judge will definitely leave New York because that option is still open.

Judge turned down the Yankees’ pre-opening day offer that would have cost $213.5 million between 2023-29. He then made history by hitting an AL-record 62 home runs that season, boosting his value on the open market. However, Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner had a one-on-one with Judge earlier this month and said he was confident in his team’s chances of bringing him back.

“I believe he wants to be a Yankee. I think we’re all right.” Steinbrenner said during media attendance at an MLB owners’ meeting.
