Around the Empire

Market Watch | Joe Flint: Comcast has resolved its dispute with Fox News. As part of the deal, Comcast was also able to resolve the issues with the YES Network and will once again be carrying the channel. So congrats to Yankee fans that have Comcast as you will once again be able to watch games at home. Though if they’re anything like the early 2016 Yankees, maybe this is a bad thing.

MLB Trade Rumors | Mark Polishuk: With the start of the new year, we get to finally start counting down until baseball season starts up again. With that, here’s a look at the top 3 remaining needs for every AL East team. For the Yankees it obviously starts with a starting pitcher. Followed by a left-handed reliever to join Aroldis Chapman and possibly Tommy Layne. And lastly first base, though that need is currently addressed by Greg Bird, it could become an area of need during the actual season depending on performance.
