Good morning, my Sports buddies!   It’s Davey Mac here back with another Report to get your day started!   We’ve got the baseball!   The football!   The basketball!   And the hockey!   Let’s do it!

But first…we have some breaking hot stove news with the Yankees…they’ve made their big free agent signing…and they’re bringing back to the team…Anthony Rizzo.   The first baseman signed a two-year contract with the Yanks with a third-year option.

So while no news on the Aaron Judge front…there is some good news with this story.

It’s been reported that Rizzo has become a very close friend of Judge’s…and so with Rizzo re-signing…could this be a sign that Judge is coming back?   Perhaps Rizzo has the inside scoop on whether his pal Aaron Judge is returning!

Listen…with the way Yankee General Manager Brian Cashman and Yankee owner Hal Steinbrenner have messed this Judge negotiation up…I need to desperately cling to any ray of sunshine that I can get!   To me…this Rizzo re-signing signals that Judge IS returning!   I HAVE to believe that!   It’s all I got!   I’m Davey Mac and that’s my two cents!
