Aaron Judge is ready to call Giancarlo Stanton his best friend

MIAMI, FL - JULY 10: Home Run Derby participants Mike Moustakas #8 of the Kansas City Royals, Cody Bellinger #35 of the Los Angeles Dodgers, Aaron Judge #99 of the New York Yankees and Giancarlo Stanton #27 of the Miami Marlins look on prior to the 2017 T-Mobile Home Run Derby at Marlins Park on Monday, July 10, 2017 in Miami, Florida.

After the Yankees reportedly agreed to acquire Giancarlo Stanton from the Marlins on Saturday, the 52-homer-hitting AL MVP runner-up knew the best way to welcome his new 59-homer-hitting NL MVP teammate: With a "Stepbrothers" quote. It's especially fitting as baseball's two large adult sons really will be like homer-bashing brothers next year. 

 After seeing how much fun it was when the two faced off in the Home Run Derby, we can only imagine how great it will be (and terrifying -- if you're a pitcher) when they're in the lineup together next year.
