Sixty-six hours remain in 2023 as of the time this post goes up. Tick-tock. Tick-tock.
Today on the site, Noah will delve into how the 2023 Dodgers’ staff managed to avoid the Yankees’ 82-win fate despite similar swaths of pitching injuries, and Matt will get into the post-holiday spirit by discussing notable Yankees “gift returns” in franchise history. Later, John will discuss Yankee Stadium’s first ace as part of the Top 100 series, Peter will ponder a reunion with James Paxton as a potential free agent target, and Madison will answer your mailbag questions.
1. Would you have rather seen the Yankees win a division title only to get swept in the Division Series like the 2023 Dodgers? Or would you have been so annoyed by it that you’d rather they miss the playoffs as they did?
2. Did you watch any of the Pinstripe Bowl yesterday?
