New York Yankees vs Minnesota Twins, 2004 American League Division Series Set Number: X71999 TK2

[ME, 11pm ET last night]: I am so ready for Yoshinobu Yamamoto to sign somewhere, anywhere. Okay, fine, I’ll accept him delaying a decision as late as possible if he comes to the Bronx, but I would like the rumors to end soon! Any day now. Pretty please? Santa, help us out here.

[ME, now]: Ah. Well.

Today on the site, John will discuss how this winter has been a master class in how not to analyze free agency as fans, and Josh will run through some consequences of MLB’s rule changes yesterday. Later on, Matt will remember WPA’s best and worst “presents” (read: game-changing errors) in Yankees history. That will have to suffice for scratching the history itch as we need to take a day hiatus from the Top 100 before picking back up tomorrow.

Questions/Prompts:

1. Where do the Yankees pivot now that Yamamoto is going to LA?

2. What are your first impressions of the new MLB rule changes for 2024?
