CBS Sports | Mike Axisa: After another disappointing end to the season, the Yankees have some big questions to answer over the winter. Whether or not they keep upcoming free agent DJ LeMahieu and what will their pitching staff look like are major decisions they will have to figure out in the coming months.

New York Post | Dan Martin: Giancarlo Stanton has a decision on whether or not to opt out of his contract this offseason, but after dealing with injuries over the past two season, it seems pretty likely that he will not. While Stanton has gone through some turbulent times in his Yankee career, this postseason showed just how much of a threat he still is.

New York Post | George A. King III: If you watched Luke Voit in the last couple weeks, it was fairly obvious that he was playing through some pain in his foot. It just didn’t seem to be the biggest deal as the times it was most obvious was when he was running the bases after hitting a home run. Even he doesn’t exactly know what the deal is and is planning to finally get it looked at and undergo an MRI.
