MLB: Boston Red Sox at New York Yankees Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

It’s our first new week of the new year. Time will tell if it brings with it actual news. The theoretical start of spring training stands just about six weeks away, and a good deal of business still remains to be wrapped up in a short amount of time. On the site today, we’ll have the usual mailbag call, Andrew, Josh examines the rivalry, or lack thereof, between the Yankees and Mets, while Kunj taps in to discuss Gary Sánchez and toxic fandom.

Fun Questions

  1. At this point, are the Yankees more likely to re-sign DJ LeMahieu or Masahiro Tanaka?
  2. After seeing how the NFC East was decided yesterday, can you envision an MLB team winning a division with a record several games under .500 any time soon?
