Around the Empire | Brendan Kuty: It’s the beginning of the year. Resolutions and crazy predictions are usually the norm during this time. From Gary Sanchez being an All-Star to Didi Gregorius proving that last year was not a fluke, here are nine predictions for the 2017 New York Yankees. | Andrew Marchand: In addition to resolutions and crazy predictions, wild dreams are also in style around this time of year. Some would refer to wild dreams as crazy predictions, but Marchand’s dreams hardly qualify as predictions, even the crazy kind. Nevertheless, it is quite the ride that he has thought of here.

Pinstriped Prospects | Robert M. Pimpsner: It is safe to say that going into the 2017 season, the Yankees have a fair bit of farm depth at the SS position. This article takes a look at Thairo Estrada, a name not commonly said when talking about the previously mentioned SS depth. While he may move around a lot due to said depth, he is still worth keeping an eye on due to solid plate discipline and decent defense.
