The biggest offseason storyline for the San Francisco Giants was their expected pursuit of Aaron Judge.

The single-season American League home run king is from the Bay Area. And, after seven great years with the Yankees, he had reached free agency. The Giants were considered the Bronx Bombers’ main competition for the slugger.

But, Judge resigned with the Yankees on a massive deal last week.

So, the San Francisco Giants had to pivot their free agent hopes after the Judge news. They also would like to re-sign free agent lefty stud pitcher Carlos Rodon. But, they’ve made an even bigger splash.

The San Francisco Giants gave Carlos Correa a massive contract

Late Tuesday night, the Giants signed superstar shortstop Carlos Correa to the 2nd-biggest contract in free agency history, only trailing the Judge deal.

Wow. That’s a massive deal. Credit to Correa, too. He bet on himself last year by signing a one-year deal in free agency with the Twins. The market was cooled due to financial losses for teams stemming from smaller crowds due to COVID and a lockout. But, the 28-year-old player got his payday in a big way.

And, the Giants are getting a great player. He’s one of the best players in baseball, is a winner, and frequently plays his best baseball in the postseason.

And, there is no opt-out and there is a no-trade clause. Quite the deal for Correa and the San Francisco Giants.
