If the Yanks were to trade for Lindor, what would they have to give up? | Bob Klapisch: The Yankees have some questions to answer this offseason. Will they re-sign DJ LeMahieu? Which Yankee is most likely to be traded? Will New York make a run at Trevor Bauer? Bob Klapisch gives his insight on all of those questions as the offseason continues to progress.

NY Times | Bruce Weber: Former Yankees reliever Lindy McDaniel passed away at age 84. He notched a 2.84 ERA and 58 saves during the lean years between 1968 and 1973 while also etching his name in Yankees history as the last pitcher to hit a home run, a go-ahead shot in the ninth inning against the Tigers’ Mickey Lolich on September 28, 1972. McDaniel died from COVID-19 complications. If you must go out in public, please wear a mask.
