New York Post | Joel Sherman: At the GM Meetings yesterday, Brian Cashman torched any remaining bridges that connected Sonny Gray to the Yankees. Cashman repeated his desire to trade Gray, and revealed that teams have already called for the right-hander. This time, however, he expressed an unusual amount of candor, bordering on animosity. “I don’t feel like we can go through the same exercise and expect different results,” he said. Typically teams play diplomatic when talking about their own players. Jeez.

New York Daily News | Scott Chiusano: We all knew that Miguel Andujar and Gleyber Torres would be named Rookie of the Year finalists. Now it’s official. The pair of Yankees infielders join Shohei Ohtani as the top three rookies in the American League. The winner will be announced on Monday, November 12th, at 6 PM ET.

Times Leader | DJ Eberle: In a surprising decision, the Yankees will not renew the contract of Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre manager Bobby Mitchell. The club will now search for its third manager in as many seasons. Mitchell replaced Al Pedrique and led the RailRiders to a 73-65 record. They also made it to the Governors’ Cup Finals. | Daniel Kramer: Yesterday the National Baseball Hall of Fame announced the Today’s Game Era ballot. George Steinbrenner’s name looms large among the ten candidates. His case will be polarizing, but I think he has a shot. Lou Piniella and Lee Smith represent the only other Yankees on the list. Voting will take place at the Winter Meetings. Now if you’ll excuse me, I will be sneering at the absence of David Cone on the ballot.
