New York Post | Dan Martin: There has been some speculation around the league that the Houston Astros were using wearable electronic devices in 2019, and Gio Urshela doesn’t rule it out. He also admitted that the whole cheating scandal made him angry. Adam Ottavino chimed in as well by saying that he isn’t so sure that Houston played by the rules after 2017.

New York Daily News | Mike Lupica: New York sports have not been friendly to its fans for a bit of time now. However, the Yankees have been a winning team for a long stretch of time. The Yankees also have a front office that has consistent faces in it, whereas the other New York teams can’t say the same.

New York Post | Steve Serby: With the start of baseball approaching, Aaron Boone sat down to answer some questions about the upcoming year. He talks about expectations, challenges, key players, and the Astros’ cheating scandal.
