Slugger and team captain Aaron Judge has opinions on what the New York Yankees need to do to improve after this lost season -- from the manager to the team's analytics department to his teammates -- and he wasn't shy in expressing them Sunday.

"There's some bigger-picture ideas and philosophies that I think maybe need to change," Judge, who wasn't in the lineup for the season finale, told reporters before Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Kansas City Royals.

"I've talked mostly with Hal [Steinbrenner], more than [GM Brian Cashman]," Judge said. "I'm looking forward to having some meetings with Hal and Cash, both in the room, and kind of all of us voicing our opinion."

He added later: "We have a good group of guys in here. I'm excited to build off what we've got here, and if we can add a couple of more pieces down the road this winter, then we'll be in a good spot."
