MLB Twitter reacts to Judge choosing Yankees over Giants originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
Aaron Judge is not coming home to the Bay Area.
Instead of signing with the Giants in free agency as was speculated, the reigning American League MVP decided to return to the New York Yankees on a contract reported to be nine years and $360 million, per The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal.
On Tuesday, MLB Network's Jon Heyman prematurely reported that "Arson [sic] Judge appears headed to the Giants," only to delete his tweet and apologize for jumping the gun. That made Wednesday morning's news sting even more for Giants fans, who went to sleep Tuesday night hoping it was only a matter of hours before a superstar signed in the Bay.
Here are some of the best reactions to the news:

Well at least the Giants will have a ton of money next offseason so they can make a huge offer that Shohei Ohtani will reject
