Welcome to Wednesday at Yankees spring training. For the second time in three nights, the Yankees threw a wrench into the news very late, as reports came out about the team coming to terms with 2021 trade deadline acquisition Anthony Rizzo. The first baseman will be back on a two-year contract with an opt-out after 2022. Ryan had an excellent quick breakdown of the news that I recommend checking out.
Today on the site, John will take the temperature of the site’s reaction to Rizzo’s return and Andrés will make the case for why Isiah Kiner-Falefa should be a super utilityman rather than a starting shortstop. Later on, Matt will continue our player preview series with Giancarlo Stanton, John will follow up the David Wells perfecto piece on Monday with a look back at David Cone’s own historic effort in the next entry of our Top 25 Games series, and Esteban will take a lighthearted look at the best fashion choices by Yankees arriving at spring training over the past week.
1. Will you watch or follow the first game of Yankees spring training?
2. What are the odds that Freddie Freeman actually signs with the Rays? Humor me.
