Bloomberg | Scott Soshnick: The Yankees enjoy a buyback right for any proposed sale of the YES network. As they prepare to bring the regional channel back into the team’s fold, they’re already lining up “strategic partners” like Amazon to change the way baseball is delivered to fans. | Mike Rosenstein: After James Paxton was acquired from the Mariners early this week, Madison Bumgarner became probably the best starting pitcher left on the trade market. The somewhat-light package the Yankees gave up for Paxton will have an impact on Bumgarner’s worth, and could change what the Giants want to do with their once-franchise pitcher.

The Telegraph | Ben Coles: MLB will make its way across the pond next year as the Yankees take on the Red Sox from London in late June. Alex Rodriguez, at the center of so many iconic moments between the two franchises, shares his excitement on the league’s initiative to test out the UK’s appetite for baseball. | Bryan Hoch: Dellin Betances isn’t just one of the very best relievers in baseball. The Yankee stud is also a truly homegrown player, having lived his entire life in New York City. This year, Dellin helped distribute Thanksgiving turkeys to 800 Harlem families that otherwise may not have had enough for a dinner. Everyone deserves a Thanksgiving feast and Dellin did what he could to make that happen.
