Curry helps Giants recruit Judge: 'Doing my part as a loyal Red Sox fan'
Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry is part of the San Francisco Giants' plan to sign reigning AL MVP and California native Aaron Judge in free agency.
Curry and Judge were supposed to have a face-to-face meeting Tuesday in San Francisco but ended up exchanging text messages because the Warriors' flight from New Orleans was delayed.
"I met him before this," Curry said, according to Monte Poole of NBC Sports Bay Area. "We've talked before. So ... let's put it this way: I am doing my part as a loyal (Boston) Red Sox fan."
Curry has been a Red Sox supporter since he was a teenager. The two-time NBA MVP and four-time champion had his bachelor party at Fenway Park in 2011 and got to meet Hall of Famer David Ortiz.
Judge reportedly met with Giants ownership, executives, and coaches during his two-day visit. He turned down a $213.5-million offer from the New York Yankees during spring training and is now thought to be asking for a deal of at least eight years that's worth over $40 million per season.
