Jonah Keri | CBS Sports: The Yanks have satisfied their desire for more bullpen help, signing Zach Britton to a four-year deal. Keri breaks down just how much money the team commits to their always stacked relief crew, and what it means for their spending in other areas moving forward.

Charlotte Carroll | Sports Illustrated: The Yankees will likely draw bigger crowds at spring training once again this year, as the team is welcoming Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson back to camp to work with them this spring. Could he provide insurance in case Troy Tulowitzki gets hurt again? I kid, I kid.

Bryan Hoch | MLB.com: Hoch breaks down Sabathia opening up about his heart condition on the newest R2C2 podcast. Sabathia says he feels 100% better, and is back to working out to prepare for the season.

Ken Davidoff | NY Post: Manny Machado feels like a long shot at this moment, but if he were to come to New York, Davidoff recommends following in the footsteps of the likes of Babe Ruth, Alex Rodriguez and Reggie Jackson. All had incredible talent, immense swagger, and one or two qualities that didn’t sit well with some fans, but they still turned in great Yankee careers.
