You’re right. This is the first item of business. Britton stays if Yanks and his agent can work out a longer deal, maybe three years. His sinker will always sink. His stuff is still nasty. He can and has closed during Chapman’s various absences. MVP of the bullpen.Maybe the first decision NY needs to make this winter is on Zack Britton. Right now his remaining deal is 1/13, FA after 2021. NY has 3 days after the World Series to decide whether to exercise a $14M option on him for 2022 or not. If they choose not to, Britton gets 2 days to decide whether to become an immediate FA or not. I’m betting they decline and he stays for 2021, but any of the three outcomes are possible.
Then they have to lock up LeMahieu.
