As soon as the World Series reaches its conclusion, the slugger will be a free agent and will have numerous teams swarming him for his services.
However, a certain former player seems to have a little beef with Judge right now.
Jose Canseco, who briefly played for the Yankees, took to Twitter to express that he was Judge’s biggest fan, but also that he could hit a softball farther than Judge could hit a baseball.
By the way Aaron judge I'm your biggest fan but I could still hit a softball further than you can hit a baseball

Canseco Rips Judge
This is some interesting criticism.
It’s awfully big talk for a guy that has been retired for over 20 years.
Perhaps Canseco’s home runs may have traveled a little farther than Judge’s homers.
But it’s important to remember that Canseco was using steroids during his heyday.
Judge did just put together a historic season, so for Canseco to be bashing him is a bit odd, especially when one considers how long the latter has been out of baseball.
Judge is still just 30 years of age and is sure to garner a ton of interest and land a massive contract with whichever team signs him.
Canseco is 58 years old and isn’t in the shape that once was as a player.
At this point, Canseco doesn’t really have any right to criticize Judge in any capacity.
Judge still has several years left in him, whereas Canseco hasn’t played since 2001.
