Pinstripe Alley open thread - 1/7/19

Start your week off right with an open thread.

MLB: Boston Red Sox at New York Yankees Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The Yankees got some work done over the weekend, signing Zach Britton after seeing David Robertson leave to the Phillies. Rumor has it they’re not done adding to the bullpen, with their sights set now on Adam Ottavino. With any luck, the Yankees hot stove action will continue to flow freely this week as it did last.

In New York sports, the Knicks head to Portland to face the Trail Blazers, while the Nets face off with the Celtics in Boston. Moreover, Alabama takes on Clemson in the National Football Championship tonight at 8:00 EST on ESPN, which should be fun.

Question to consider:

Should the Yankees reel in Ottavino along with Britton, what are your expectations regarding contract terms? More or less dollars and years than Britton?
