NYY vs. LAA: Luis Severino vs. Noe Ramirez

New York’s favorite cyborg has been dropping hints that he wants to stay in New York past the end of his two-year, $24-million deal, and is open to working on an extension — but should the Yankees go there? While the initial answer to, “Should they hold onto one of their best players?” at the surface should be a resounding “Of course!”, there’s a lot beneath the surface to sift through. Why the Yankees should get an extension wrapped up early DJ LeMahieu...
