League Championship Series - New York Yankees v Houston Astros - Game Six Photo by Elsa/Getty Images | Randy Miller: There are a lot of questions for the Yankees to answer over the coming months. One was resolved when they worked out a deal with Aroldis Chapman the other night, but plenty remain. Have we seen the last of Didi Gregorius, Austin Romine, or Dellin Betances? Might the Bombers make a legit run at any of the top free agents? Stay tuned to find out.

New York Post | Joel Sherman: After adding another year to Chapman’s contract, Sherman estimates how close the team will be to the 2020 luxury tax threshold of $208 million after everyone who is arbitration-eligible receives their respective raises. It doesn’t look like they’ll have too much wiggle room. It’ll be interesting to see whether Hal Steinbrenner opens up his wallet. | John Harper: Now is the time for sharing bold offseason predictions. Harper guesses that Clint Frazier will be traded, and that Gregorius walks, among other things. Sound off on your predictions in the comments section!
