The Judge has made his ruling ... and it's GREAT news for Yankees fans.
Aaron Judge is re-signing with New York -- and, according to multiple reports, he's getting paid handsomely to do so ... agreeing to a 9-year, $360 MILLION contract.
The Yankees had been competing with the San Francisco Giants for the outfielder's services ... and for a brief period on Tuesday, they had appeared to lose the battle.
But, after seven great seasons in NY, Judge is clearly now looking to finish his career in the Bronx.
The 30-year-old reigning AL MVP is coming off the best year of his life ... hitting a staggering 62 home runs (the new AL record) while logging 131 RBI and a .311 batting average.

Judge in '22 also led the league in runs scored (133), walks (111), and slugging percentage (.686).
The huge season seemingly helped him get a wild pay bump too ... considering he reportedly turned down a $200-plus million contract from the Yanks before the year began.
Judge will now look to build on a pinstripe career that's already seen him bat .284 with 220 home runs and 497 total RBI.
Rejoice, NY ... rejoice!
