ESPN | David Purdum: The announcement of the 2020 season also brought along the betting odds for what will surely be a wild year, but despite all of the potential parity and chaos, there are still two familiar names atop the most likely to win the World Series. As of today, it’s the Yankees and Dodgers seen as the two favorites to take home the title.

Daily News | Kristie Ackert: The offseason, or at least the original one that started back in November, feels like a lifetime ago. So in case you forgot about the main storylines for the Yankees heading into the 2020 season, here they are. It’s another friendly reminder that Gerrit Cole is indeed a Yankee.

SNY | Scott Thompson: The 2020 season will certainly be unique, and the parity of a 60-game season can wind up impacting the Yankees in a number of ways. A tougher schedule that includes more games against teams like the Braves, Phillies, Mets and Nationals could impact the season, as of course could any kind of injury, which the Yanks have dealt with a lot of since the beginning of last season.
