New York Post | Ken Davidoff: We are now a week into the new year, and closer than you think to the start of spring training. There’s still plenty of offseason left to go, however, so here’s a quick look at what the Yankees have done and what they still may need to do.

SNY | Scott Thompson: The Yankees made pretty much the biggest move possible this offseason when they signed Gerrit Cole. As good as the roster looks on paper, there are still some questions about the team that need to be answered before Opening Day. | Matt Kelly: Gleyber Torres is extremely young, but already really, really good. The former second baseman is poised to become the Yankees’ regular shortstop, but that might not be the only thing he’s poised for. The youngster is projected to put up some big numbers in coming years and could be primed to become a superstar.

Williamsport Sun-Gazette: You may be wondering what a round-up of central Pennsylvania high school basketball games is doing here. There answer is 1) This wasn’t a news heavy day, and 2) You may recognize a last name of one of the players mentioned in the article. Hall of Famer and former Yankees pitcher Mike Mussina is the head coach of the boys basketball team at his alma mater, Montoursville High School. So far, his Warriors’ team is 6-2, and will be in action tonight. Montoursville doesn’t have much of a recent basketball history, but he’s taken them to the Pennsylvania state playoffs the last two seasons, and seems to be quite the coach.
