Cut4 | Andrew MEARNS!!!: Oh man the first “MEARNS!!!” of the year didn’t take long. It’s nice to get the first one out of the way and the rest will now come naturally. Greg Kirkland and I are going to team up to try and break the single-season “MEARNS!!!” record. Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge have nothing on us. But enough about Mearns, there’s a post here. This post looks back on the 2017 baseball season and recalls the best celebrations of the year. I know, y’all are waiting for Toe-night.

Cut4 | Jake Mintz and Jordan Shusterman: Okay I only have 140 280 characters to describe this article. Twitter was one of the most important websites in 2017, so it only makes sense to look back on the best baseball-related tweets of the year. Didi Gregorius’s victory tweets were inexplicably snubbed. Aaron Judge’s reaction to Giancarlo Stanton becoming a Yankee does make an appearance, however, as well as when the Yankees found out they got 280 characters. | Doug Miller: Now I know what you’re thinking. We haven’t spent enough time reviewing the 2017 baseball season. Well, do I have a surprise for you. We’re now going to talk about the 10 best baseball games of the year. The Yankees made two appearances on this list, one good and one bad. I’ll let you go take a look and see which games they were, but I think you can at least guess the bad one.

New York Post | Joel Sherman: Okay people, I think we’ve reviewed 2017 enough. I won’t have another post on it, you can’t force me! Since it’s the new year, we’re going to look ahead to the 2018 Yankees. Coming into the new year, the Yankees seem to want another starter, but that’s not their biggest need right now. They have gaps at second and third base and could certainly use some insurance for at least one of those positions. Their most experienced option right now is Ronald Torreyes.

Happy New Year, folks! Thanks for reading PSA through 2017 and looking forward to bringing you more great Yankee content in 2018. Hope y’all had fun celebrating last night!
