Happy new year! Our holiday hiatus is now over and we’re ready to start bringing you all content again. Hopefully, CBA negotiations will heat up sooner rather than later so we can return to hot stove news and later preview the 2022 season. For now, let’s ease back into things with our usual Monday post: the mailbag.

As always, send your mailbag questions to viewsfrom314 [at] gmail [dot] com, or alternatively, send them to us via Twitter. We answer our favorites every Monday. Here are this week’s questions and responses:

Mailbag: Who is the Best NYY Middle Reliever of All-Time?

Happy Monday, folks. Another week without baseball or even any baseball news. Love that for us! To hold us over, let’s do a mailbag, shall we? A bunch of fun questions this week tackled below. As always, if you’d like to be included in a future edition, send us your questions to We choose our favorites each week and answer them on Mondays.

To the questions!

Mailbag: Clint Frazier trades, revisiting the Miguel Cabrera trade with Juan Soto

Good morning, everyone. Hope you all had a great weekend. It was an extremely quiet one in terms of hot stove news, and it’s going to remain that way as long as the lockdown remains in effect. Brian Cashman did rappel off buildings in Stamford, Connecticut, as he does each and every offseason. He couldn’t answer any questions about major league transactions, though.

The Yankees did address some coaching staff vacancies, at least. Dillon Lawson will take over as hitting coach, with two assistants to be determined. He had been in the system for a few years now, and considering the widespread success down on the farm, he makes a lot of sense. Meanwhile, Desi Druschel will be the assistant pitching coach to Matt Blake. Druschel has been in the organization since 2019.

Without further ado, let’s get to today’s mailbag. But first, here’s a reminder to send your questions to viewsfrom314 at gmail dot com. We select our favorites every Monday.

Mailbag: Gallo trade, matching free agent signings, and more

Good morning everyone. I hope you all had a great weekend and an enjoyable Thanksgiving. If you haven’t worked since Wednesday, this is one of the tougher Mondays of the year to get through. If that’s the case for you, at least the MLB hot stove is ablaze with plenty of news to keep you distracted. The Mets made a bunch of signings and may be near a deal for Max Scherzer. The Rangers just inked Marcus Semien. Kevin Gausman is headed to Toronto. And other big names could agree to deals before the CBA expires this week. Whew.

Hopefully, a new CBA can be hammered out in reasonable time. Otherwise, the inevitable lockout will really stink. So for as long as there’s little to no MLB news after this week, we’ll need some of your most creative questions to keep the mailbag fresh week-to-week. Send them to viewsfrom314 at gmail dot com. We’ll pick and answer our favorites each Monday. Here are this week’s:
