New York Post | George A. King III: David Cone is now the third candidate who has interviewed for the vacant pitching coach job in the Bronx. It’s a contrast from the two previous interviewees in age and job title considering Cone is not a college coach. Having worked in the Yankees booth, he has a good understanding of the strategies the organization already has in place and might look to bring in. He’s the first candidate who has a relationship with the Yankees and is largely known throughout baseball.

New York Post | Peter Botte: Didi Gregorius is officially a free agent and one of the first things he did was take to social media to congratulate former coach, Joe Girardi, and former teammate, Carlos Beltran. Both have been named coaches of teams in the NL East but the comment shows just why Gregorius is so great. | Mark Feinsand: Aaron Boone was able to lead the Yankees to 103 wins with the most injured team in baseball history. With that accomplishment it’s easy to consider him a finalist for the Manager of the Year award along side Kevin Cash and Rocco Baldelli. Boone continuously had to shuffle around the lineup and consistently lead a team of replacement level players to prove they were more than just that.
