Around the Empire: Yankees news - 2/7/16

Yankees take to social media to make their Super Bowl picks; Sterling and Waldman have new two-year contracts; A-Rod should take reps at first base during spring training.

Noam Galai/Getty Images | Ryan Hatch: In honor of Super Bowl Sunday, 12 Yankees (including manager Joe Girardi) took to Twitter to share their predictions. The vast majority think that the Panthers will come out on top.

It's About The Money | Brad Vietrogoski: Now that Greg Bird is going to miss the entire 2016 season, the Yankees should consider getting Alex Rodriguez some more time at first base during spring training. Then he could fill in for Mark Teixeira in a jam.

New York Daily News | Bob Raissman: WFAN appears to have reached a deal to bring back John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman to the radio booth for two more years. This will be their 12th year together.

New York Post | Joel Sherman: The Yankees are taking a bit of a risk by using Starlin Castro as their second baseman since he only changed positions last season, but several other teams are throwing players into new positions this season that could prove to be disastrous.
