Aaron Judge has been killing it with his recent performances, including two home runs against the Boston Red Sox to raise his tally to 57 while drawing a walk in the tenth inning in that game.

Also, the 30-year-old matched the record of a former Yankee, Babe Ruth, that was set in 1928. This was when he pushed his home run lead over the Philadelphia Phillies’ Kyle Schwarber to 20.

Looking ahead, the reality of it all is that Judge will be inching close to free agency. And this early, it remains unknown if the four-time All-Star will stay in New York or test the waters.

Some suggest that there is a chance that Judge could follow Ruth’s move and end up playing for the Red Sox once his deal with the Yankees runs out.

Following the Yankees' 7-6 win, Judge was asked about the possibility of him moving to Boston if negotiations with New York bog down. His response could rattle Yankees fans, especially considering he has been on a tear this season.

“Ooh,” Judge responded. “We’ll talk about that later in the year.”

There is no doubt that multiple MLB teams will try to pry Judge away from the Yankees. But should he end up joining the Red Sox, it would be an entirely different story.

“[Red Sox] fans are some of the best in baseball. They’re gonna boo you, they’re gonna say some things, they’re gonna make you laugh. It’s all part of it. [There’s] a lot of great history here [in Fenway Park] and this is one of the best places to play so it’s always fun going out there and trying to put on a show for them,” Judge quipped.

Hence, the remaining Red Sox vs. Yankees games, five in total this season, could be interesting to monitor. It all boils down to how much New York can offer, same with the Red Sox.
