Hello again, welcome to another mid-week open thread. The rundown for today’s articles includes a piece on players who just couldn’t cut it in New York, some last-minute Yankees fan gift ideas for Mother’s Day, a whole bunch of trades completed on This Day in Yankees History, another draft profile aimed at a promising high-school shortstop and a discussion on who could ascend to the Yankees’ captaincy.
Feel free to use this space as your open thread for the day. As the saying goes, come in for the articles and stay for the comments section. Or something like that.
1. Will the Yankees retire Paul O’Neill’s #21 jersey, or will another Yankee wear it again someday?
2. Last year Adam Ottavino introduced the #0 jersey to the Yankees collection, would you be interested in seeing someone take a triple-digits jersey?
