Mays. Bonds. Judge?

Reigning American League MVP Aaron Judge is in San Francisco, and MLB.com's Jon Morosi says that the free agent is slated to meet with Farhan Zaidi and the Giants this week:

MLB.com's Mark Feinsand hears that the meeting will take place on Tuesday.

While the New York Yankees remain the favorites to sign Judge, the Giants are an interesting potential alternative for the four-time All-Star.

A year after winning a franchise-record 107 games, Gabe Kapler's Giants regressed to 81 wins in 2022. They've fallen significantly behind both the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres -- two National League West rivals -- in terms of star power, but signing Judge would help them to close that gap.

Although it didn't stop the aforementioned Barry Bonds from breaking nearly every home run record, Oracle Park certainly wouldn't be an ideal destination for a power hitter when compared to Yankee Stadium.

With that said, it's arguably the most beautiful stadium in the sport, and Judge -- who went to Linden High School and Fresno State -- grew up rooting for the Giants. If the Yankees don't ultimately present a suitable offer to Judge, the Giants could be the favorites to land him.

MLB Trade Rumors has projected that Judge, set to turn 31 in April, will land an eight-year/$332 million deal.
