NY Daily News: After just about the longest public bachelorhood New York City has seen since JFK Jr., it looks like Derek Jeter is finally going to settle down. Rumor has it that he is now engaged to girlfriend Hannah Davis, who became a regular at special Yankee games during Jeter's last season in 2014. I suppose that means the bachelorhood crown has been passed to Mets ace Matt Harvey, who started the World Series opener last night.

NY Post | Joel Sherman: Yankees GM Brian Cashman reached out to Ben Cherington after the Red Sox dismissed their GM in favor of Dave Dombrowski back in August. However, Cherington turned Cashman (and other MLB teams) down so that he could take a year away from the game by teaching at Columbia University. Can't blame Cashman for trying.

MLB.com | Antonio Cannavaro: Top Yankees catching prospect Gary Sanchez earned Arizona Fall League Player of the Week honors for the second week of games, in which he ran roughshod over his opposition by batting .421 and expanding his AFL lead in homers (5), hits (16), and total bases (33). Not too shabby.

James Smyth: Prior to the start of the Mets/ Royals World Series, the YES Network researcher brought fans back to the past with the stories behind all six previous New York/Kansas City sports playoff matchups, including all four of the fierce Yankees/Royals ALCS showdowns from 1976-80.

LoHud | Chad Jennings: The Yankees have some tough decisions ahead in the off-season as they try to improve the lineup through the free agent and trade market, despite a roster that doesn't really have much flexibility. How much desperately needed youth will they be able to keep in the lineup?
