Weekend Open Thread

The Yankees had themselves a pretty busy Friday today and I missed most of it because of some family stuff.

Fun [...] Weekend Open Thread is a post from: River Avenue Blues The post Weekend Open Thread appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Although the Yankees didn’t do anything of note at the Winter Meetings last week, they have been busy this offseason and especially this month.
