The New York Yankees are once again faced with a Spring Training full of questions. The hot-topic: did general manager Brian Cashman do enough to fortify the Bronx Bombers to get by the World Champion Houston Astros.
Carlos Beltran seemed destined for the National Baseball Hall of Fame. In November of 2019, the New York Mets named their former star as the Amazin's next manager. Less than three months later, Beltran's baseball world unraveled. A few years later, the call from Cooperstown never came.
A few weeks back, the New York Mets and first baseman Pete Alonso agreed to a 1-year $14.5 million contract to avoid salary arbitration. Alonso, coming off of a 40 HR and 131 RBI season in 2022, is still under team control until after the 2024 campaign. Mets fans would love to see 'Polar Bear Pete' make his home in Queens for the rest of his career. However, the Amazin's may encounter some icy waters before a contract like that gets done.
Those that have to toggle from one streaming service to the next to follow their favorite New York sports teams, cannot wait for more networks to provide Direct-To-Customer streams, known as DTC's. That means you don't have to subscribe to cable or any other streaming provider in order to watch your favorite team's games. Yankees fans, your day is coming!
