Sporting News | Joe Rivera: Remember when Brandon Drury was the Yankees third baseman? Neither do I. Miguel Andujar is your Sporting News 2018 AL Rookie of the Year. Andujar received 61 of 99 votes, while Shohei Otani (19 votes) and Joey Wendle (11) finished in second and third, respectively. | Mike Rosenstein: It’s not a secret that the Yankees will be tweaking their pitching staff this offseason. Sonny Gray is on his way out, and Patrick Corbin has been rumored to be a top target. Three other pitchers the Yankees might pursue: Nathan Eovaldi, Charlie Morton, and Madison Bumgarner. The Yankees have shown interest in Bumgarner in the past, but it’s hard to really see any substance behind the Eovaldi or Morton rumors. It would seem the interest at this point lies in the fact that Eovaldi used to be a Yankee and Morton, a native of Connecticut, would be a quasi-local sign. | Joe Giglio: Buster Olney originally speculated that the Yankees might pursue Paul Goldschmidt this offseason, and now writers everywhere are running with the story. The Yankees haven’t got a decent season of production from first base since Mark Teixeira’s 2015 season, so adding a bat like Goldschmidt’s would be a perfect match.

NY Daily News | Kenneth Lovett: Why haven’t the Yankees won a World Series since 2009? If you said because of Governor Andrew Cuomo, then you might be right. In fact, the Yankees didn’t win a World Series title while Mario Cuomo was in office from 1983 to 1994. The Cuomos clearly are putting some kind of hex on the Yankee organization, and it 100% was not a slow news day,
