New York Yankees fans can start to get excited. According to reports, #99 indeed appears to be returning to the Bronx for a very long time. It also appears that Hal Steinbrenner was true to his word that the Pinstripes weren't going to let money get in the way of bringing the home run champion back home.

According to ESPN's Jeff Passan the Yankees have offered the right-fielder a contract "in the neighborhood of eight years and $300 million and could increase it, depending on how far the San Francisco Giants, the other top suitor, are willing to push the market." An eight-year, $300 million offer would have an annual average value of $37.5 million. That would make Judge the highest paid position player in Major League Baseball. Los Angelas Angels outfielder, Mike Trout currently holds that top spot with an average yearly contract value of $35.5 million.

When will Aaron Judge make a decision? Well, according to Jon Paul Morosi of MLB.com, "Judge, to me, is likely a Yankees-or-Giants decision," Morosi said on Tuesday. "So I think the clarity of Judge's market and the relatively binary choice that he has, will help him decide by the end of next week. I've always believed that he's going to be able to sign by the end of the Winter Meetings, and I've had nothing in the last several days to suggest that it's going to go beyond that." That is good news that it doesn't appear this will drag on. Until then, Yankee fans can hold their breath.
