New York Post | George King III: An evaluator believes that the Dodgers are the favorites to sign Yoan Moncada because, even though the Yankees like him, they aren't crazy about the incredibly high price tag that is attached.

Sporting News | Jesse Spector: Some people may complain that the Yankees have been too liberal with retiring numbers, but only a select few have their number retired without being enshrined in Cooperstown. It shouldn't be a terrible thing if that's how the team chooses to honor their great players.

CBS Sports | Mike Axisa: Derek Jeter is going to be out of the country instead of attending the Yankees' 2015 home opener.

Newsday | Erik Boland: Alex Rodriguez reached out to Chase Headley to introduce himself after the team's new third baseman signed a four-year deal with the team this offseason.

New York Post | Ken Davidoff: Who are the ten pitchers who could claim the title of the Yankees' best pitcher in 2015? One of them isn't even on the team right now, one is retired, and one is Chris Capuano.
