Around the Empire

LoHud Yankees Blog | Chad Jennings: As we’ve mentioned quite a bit in the offseason, the Yankees have a lot of questions to answer before the 2017 season begins. In this article, Chad takes a look at ten of those questions. Hopefully the Yankees will have all the answers we need by the spring. | Brendan Kuty: Brian Cashman and friends made a lot of trades last season. Here, Brendan gives you a chance to grade all of them, in addition to reading his own grades of them. Be kind to some and harsh to others.

New York Daily News | Mark Feinsand: As the Cubs somewhat emulated the ‘98 Yankees ALCS, this news about Scott Brosius is pretty nice. Brosius, who was the Triple-A Tacoma hitting coach, is being promoted to the big leagues as the Mariners’ assistant hitting coach. Good luck to a former Yankee.

New York Post | Ken Davidoff: The Yankees have a strict beard policy. There are no beards. Some players like beards or are too lazy to shave it off. Take a look at some former Yankees who immediately grow their beard back once they depart the Bronx.

Fun Questions

  • Which former Yankee do you think looks better with a beard?
  • Which current Yankee do you think would benefit from having a beard?
