Good morning everyone. Today, we debut our Rebuilt series, an in-depth look at the 2016 Yankees club that changed the trajectory of the franchise. This morning, look for the introduction to the series, and in the afternoon, check out my piece on the build-up to 2016, and how the championship Yankees slowly transformed into a team that had no choice but to retool.

Fun Questions

  1. What was the most impressive rebuild of the last decade? Was it the Yankees, who basically retooled in the span of a year? Was it the Cubs or Astros, who plunged to far deeper depths, but also greater heights? Maybe the Red Sox, who retooled after last-place finishes to win titles?
  2. Did you watch the final episodes of The Last Dance, the documentary chronicling Michael Jordan’s last season with the Chicago Bulls?
