Will Aaron Judge be in New York next year... just not with the Yankees?
The "New" New York Yankees The New York Yankees historically have been known as one of the greatest sports organizations across the globe. They have often had the reputation of flashing their wallets to obtain players to keep them the powerhouse they are known to be in the MLB. This is not exactly the case anymore. With new ownership being the late George Steinbrenner's son Hal, the spending has become look more like a money-ball technique. Hal and GM Brian Cashman have stayed under the luxury tax for over 6 years now, something the Yankees notoriously always paid due to their frequent spending. Although the Yankees have been spending lightly compared to previous years, they still rank 3rd in the league with their spending based on their tax allocation as shown by Spotrac below.
