Manny Machado won't be a free agent until next offseason, but Aaron Judge is already making his pitch to the All-Star shortstop on why he should join the Yankees. "Adding him to our lineup that we've already got would be something special. I told him he'd look good in pinstripes," Judge said. Judge said he made his pitch to Machado before Wednesday's spring training game. "He just kind of laughed it off and didn't really say much," Judge said. "We talked a little bit, and I just asked him how his offseason was, how everything was going," Judge added. "I asked him how he liked short and said you'd look pretty good in pinstripes, too." Adding Machado to Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, Greg Bird, Gary Sanchez and Didi Gregorius seems like something a baseball fan could only do in a video game. But it would be costly, given that Machado could command $30 million or more per year in a long-term megadeal on the open market.
