The offseason’s glacial pace has continued, though at least the Yankees have generated some news. Of course, they signed DJ LeMahieu last week, the Sonny Gray market is heating up, and Manny Machado supposedly has an eight-year offer on the table right now, though reports are conflicting as to what’s actually been offered to the superstar infielder.
In other sports, the Nets head to Houston to face the red-hot James Harden and the Rockets, to go along with a full NBA slate. New York hockey teams are off on this Wednesday rivalry night.
Question to consider:
With the Gray market heating up again, what would you want Brian Cashman to target as a return? A major-league player? Low-level prospects?
The most prominent Yankee birthday today might be Ron Villone, the former lefty reliever who was with team in 2006 and 2007. Also of note are Yankee legends Reid Brignac and Zelous Wheeler.
