How Steph’s pitch to entice Judge to Giants unfolded initially appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
SAN FRANCISCO – When going after an ultrabright diamond, as the San Francisco Giants are with MLB free-agent slugger Aaron Judge, reasoning determines utilizing every offered resource.
Even if that resource is unaffiliated with the Giants.
Which is why Warriors super star Stephen Curry was called into service as part of the recruiting committee in the Giants’ mission to entice Judge far from the Yankees and back to his Northern California roots.
“I can neither confirm nor deny,” Curry informed NBC Sports Bay Area late Wednesday night at Chase Center.
Curry then got into full-throated laughter.
Curry disclosed that there was an effort to organize a conference on Tuesday with Judge throughout his two-day remain in San Francisco. When that didn’t take place – the Warriors’ flight from New Orleans showed up a bit too late – they chose exchanging text.
“I met him before this,” Curry stated of Judge. “We’ve talked before. So . . . let’s put it this way: I am doing my part as a loyal Red Sox fan.”
Any fan of the Boston Red Sox would be thrilled to see Judge, the ruling American League MVP, leave their arch-rival in New York.

Curry appeared really enthusiastic that the Giants’ hiring pitch achieves success – even if it indicates sharing the huge phase with a man who swings a mean baseball bat.
The concern is whether the Giants, whose delegation hosted supper with Judge on Monday night, can follow their specified desire with a megadeal that will encourage Judge, a local of the Central Valley town on Linden, to reject the Yankees.
