After all of that, the New York Yankees won the Aaron Judge sweepstakes, keeping their superstar at home.

Ken Rosenthal reported on Wednesday morning that the franchise signed the 2022 AL MVP in return for a contract in the $360 million neighborhood, leaving San Fransisco Giants fans devastated after it was misreported by Jon Heyman last night that San Francisco had signed the slugger.

Here is how 2023 World Series odds moved following the breaking news.

The defending champions, the Houston Astros, did not see odds movement at the top of the market following the news. After all, they were able to defeat a Yankees roster in the ALCS that included Judge.

In the NL, the Los Angeles Dodgers remained the favorite for the World Series, maintaining their +600 price over at FanDuel.

The Yankees, who were +950 prior to resigning Judge, dipped to +850 after it was confirmed that he was staying in the Bronx. The Giants, on the other hand, dipped as they currently sit at +5500 at FanDuel — nearly double the +3000 odds they had prior to the news.

Judge led of all baseball in home runs (62), runs (133), RBIs (131) and walks (111). He helped the Yankees to a 99-63 record and AL East crown.

The Giants, meanwhile, have won the NL West once (2021) over the last 10 years. The Dodgers have the other nine.

Other teams listed at +1000 or shorter include the New York Mets at +900, the Atlanta Braves at +950 and the Philadelphia Phillies at +1000.

The MLB season won’t get going for approximately four months, but Yankees fans can breathe a big sigh of relief as their star man isn’t going anywhere.
