The big news of the weekend, of course, was the Yankees’ signing of DJ LeMahieu. We’ve obviously had plenty to say on the matter. If you missed any of it, feel free to check out analysis of LeMahieu’s fit with the Yankees, how he impacts the payroll, and LeMahieu’s chances of improving with New York.
Elsewhere in sports, it’s a Sunday in January, so we’ve got playoff football. The 1:00 EST matchup is a delicious fight between the Philip Rivers-led Chargers and Tom Brady’s Patriots. Later today, the Eagles and Saints face off in New Orleans. It should be fun.
Be sure to wish a happy 37th to former Yankee pitcher Darrell Rasner. Rasner featured most prominently for the 2008 team, which, unfortunately, was the first Yankees squad in over a dozen years to miss the playoffs.
