How does Aaron Boone view the distance between his Yankees and the World Series champion Red Sox? "Obviously they were an unbelievable team this year and roster. But we also understand that although we're very much on level ground, we've obviously got areas that we need to improve to close that gap. We feel like when we're at our best, we're as good as any team there is."

Rockies manager Bud Black was asked if Adam Ottavino would strike out Babe Ruth. "You know, Babe was pretty good down and in," Black said. "That breaking ball coming down and in to him, he might be able to get that at Yankee Stadium — or Coors Field, if Babe played at Coors."

Brian Cashman says the Yankees are currently "very engaged" with other teams and agents. But "where this leads? I couldn't tell you." Naturally, isn't discussing the reported pending multi-team trade, but did add he "likes to think we're aggressive and open-minded" to offers sent their way.

There is a lot of stuff slinging around Vegas in regards to the rumored Mets/Marlins/Yankees deal. With so many moving parts, it seems unlikely to move from rumor to reality, but you never know. It's been awhile since baseball had a great blockbuster three-teamer. The big clog in the machine: Would the Yankees really want to part with Miguel Andujar and a package of meaningful prospects for three years of Noah Syndergaard, who has started just 32 games over the last two years? Also, it still seems like any win-right-now scenario for the Mets would involve Thor, but Andujar and JT Realmuto would be an amazing return. Should be an interesting day in Vegas.
