Around the Empire: Yankees News - 11/22/20

Laying out a perfect offseason for the Yankees; DJ LeMahieu set up to get paid this winter; NYC pledges financial support for Staten Island Yanks to improve ballpark.

Wild Card Round - New York Yankees v Cleveland Indians - Game Two Photo by Jason Miller/Getty Images | Joe Giglio: The Yankees have yet to make much noise, if any, this offseason, but there are a number of moves they could make to make this an ideal winter. From making a splash for Francisco Lindor to bringing back DJ LeMahieu and Masahiro Tanaka, Giglio highlights what would make up an optimal offseason for the championship-hopeful Yanks.

NY Post | George A. King III: LeMahieu should be one of the top priorities for the Yankees this offseason, but they might have competition for the batting champ within their own city. With the Mets losing Robinson Cano for the year due to another PED suspension, the Mets now have a need at second base, and apparent money to spend with a new owner in town. That means LeMahieu, already one of the most coveted free agents on the market, should expect a big payday in what should otherwise be a fairly quiet offseason.

NY Post | Rich Calder: The Yankees are no longer affiliated with the Staten Island Yankees after the recent minor league restructuring, and the city has now pledged $5 million to improve the former Single-A affiliate’s home park. Exactly what league the franchise will join remains to be seen, but whenever the team reopens its doors, expect some enhancements.
