New York Daily News | Kristie Ackert: Enough has been written about Gary Sánchez’s awful 2020, and it’s time to look ahead to the catcher’s future. He’ll spend a part of the winter playing in the Dominican League, which will hopefully allow him the low-stakes arena he needs to rebuild what’s become a completely broken swing. After that, Gary’s 2021 is anyone’s guess, with already shocking roster moves being made elsewhere in the league casting something of a shadow over his future in pinstripes. | Mike Rosenstein: All MLB owners will gather for a vote on Friday, regarding whether to allow hedge fund manager Steve Cohen to purchase the New York Mets. Cohen will need a two-thirds majority to allow him to take over ownership, and Yankees’ principle owner Hal Steinbrenner is expected to vote in favor of the sale.

New York Post | Justin Tasch: It’s never to early to start looking ahead, and we get our first look at the odds for the 2021 World Series. The Dodgers are the early favorites at 4/1, but the Yankees aren’t too far behind at 6/1. We’ve spent a lot of time critiquing this roster, but the talent on the Yankees is evident, especially if they retain some of the current free agents that have contributed so much to the club.
