SNY | Danny Abriano: Here is a look at what the Yankees’ payroll situation going into this offseason and beyond. Obviously, what they’re planning on doing and who they’re trying to acquire is pure speculation at this point, but there’s what they’re working with. Now let the arguments about what they should do begin.

New York Post | Dan Martin: Gary Sanchez may have struggled in the postseason, but don’t expect the Yankees to use that as a reason to go in a different direction. At his end of season press conference, said that he saw the catcher as “part of the solution” for the Yankees. Despite what you may think, Sanchez is a very valuable player when he’s performing, and it appears the Yankees also view it that way.

FiveThirtyEight | Neil Paine: Stories about the Expos missing out at their best championship chance and Matt Williams getting his shot at the single-season home run record are usually the main things mentioned when people talk about what we missed out on with the cancellation of the end of the 1994 season. However, we’re also aware that the Yankees were in the midst of an excellent season. Using the simulation game Out of the Park, this article attempts to play out what would have happened had ‘94 come to a more natural conclusion. The answer is that, the Yankees may have done quite well, as they won the World Series in over 23% of the 1000 simulations. Pour one out for Joe Ausanio.
