Kylie Jenner Shares 'Daddy' & 'Wifey' Christmas Presents After Drama Over Fake Travis Scott Photo

Kylie Jenner‘s Christmas is off to a loving start.

Days after Jenner slammed a prank photo that claimed to show Travis Scott cheating on her with another woman, the Kylie Cosmetics mogul, 21, shared a video of his and hers Christmas presents.

In a clip shared to her Instagram Story on Friday, Jenner showed off the “first two gifts under the tree” this year.

Jenner zoomed in on two gold-wrapped gifts, one with a “Daddy” tag and the other with a “Wifey” label, in the short clip, which has since been deleted.

The couple frequently calls each other “wifey” and “hubby,” but as PEOPLE previously confirmed in October, they’re in no rush to tie the knot and are focusing on raising their daughter, 10-month-old Stormi.

On Saturday, Jenner went on to post a short video on her Instagram Story that showed the proud mother carrying the couple’s child. While resting on her mother’s hip, Stormi adorably broke out into a sweet smile. The duo wore a set of matching grey sweats and color coordinating beanies.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star also showered her baby girl with love and kisses in a series of sweet photos posted on her Instagram feed.

“She loves my kisses I promise,” Jenner captioned one of the images, which pictured the two cuddling up in front of a plane.

Addressing the doctored photo — which was revealed to be a hoax — in an Instagram Story on Wednesday, Jenner wrote, “Idk if this is really a social experiment to some people but you’re messing with real people, real relationships, real family.”

“I’m happy my relationship is strong because this is getting out of hand. The internet scares me sometimes for real,” she added in the since-deleted post.

Jenner’s comments came hours after Kim and Khloé Kardashian also expressed their “disgust” with the prank.

“I hate that I am bringing attention to this but this is absolutely disgusting that you would find this funny to mess with Travis & Kylie who just started a family together,” Kim, 38, tweeted Wednesday in reference to the couple’s daughter Stormi. “This is really damaging to relationships, families and is just so wrong!”

Khloé, 34, chimed in, “People are absolutely disgusting! The mind games this would do to somebody… That is so completely not OK! This person should be so ashamed of themselves! What filth.”

On Monday, Scott, 26, was forced to address the allegations, writing in his Instagram Stories, “Trolls always wanna create some fake s— to destroy real love. GOING OVER BOARD TO MAKE S— LOOK LIKE IS NOT IS EVIL.”

“I hate acknowledging s—. But quit try to take joy from s— that’s good. I pray god blocks out all evil,” Scott continued.

Order, Order! Wacky Westminster revealed

They have our whole world in their hands. In the coming days, 650 members of the House of Commons at Westminster could decide the future of the Irish Border when they vote on Brexit.

When you take away the seven Sinn Féin MPs who will choose not to take part in a decision of historic significance, there are 643 MPs who will play a role in deciding on the island’s fate.

After more than two years of stuttering, and occasionally farcical, negotiations, Theresa May reached agreement with the EU on a withdrawal deal.

But as she lost three votes in the House of Commons this week, it became clear that she has lost significant influence over the outcome.

The power lies with the Westminster parliament, an institution that clings to arcane and anachronistic rituals, presided over by a Speaker who at times behaves like an over-exuberant headmaster vainly trying to bring order to a classroom of unruly teenagers. So what are the ABCs of the mother of parliaments, where MPs of opposing parties must always be two swords’ lengths apart?

A is for Abstention

Sinn Féin prefers to sit on its hands and avoid the House of Commons, despite having seven members of parliament elected. The party treats abstentionism as an obscure article of faith, refusing to take part in debates or vote. As a result there is now no nationalist representation in Westminster. Although they don’t turn up and do not receive a salary, the MPs still manage to claim over €100,000 in annual expenses between them.

B is for Black Rod

The Lady or Gentleman Usher of the Black Rod, or Black Rod for short, is Queen Elizabeth’s representative in parliament. The post is currently held by a woman Sarah Clark. Black Rod plays a crucial role at the State Opening of parliament, when she enters the Commons telling members to come to listen to the Queen’s speech. During the ceremony the door of the Commons is slammed in Black Rod’s face to symbolise the independence of parliament. He or she then bangs three times on the door with the rod. The door to the Commons Chamber is then opened and MPs follow Black Rod.

C is for Contempt

MPs this week passed a historic motion to hold the government in contempt of parliament over its failure to release the cabinet’s legal advice on the Brexit deal. In former times, the Commons could imprison members found to be in contempt in a room in the tower containing Big Ben. But there was no sign of Theresa May being carted off to the clock tower this week.

D is for Dennis Skinner

Known as the “Beast of Bolsover”, the acerbic veteran Labour MP (pictured below) can often be seen hovering near the front benches, where he is renowned for his heckling. He even makes quips about the Queen at the State opening of parliament. In 2006, he asked the Queen’s offical Black Rod during the ceremony: “Have you got Helen Mirren on standby.”

E is for Expenses

When it comes to sheer extravagance on their expenses claims, British MPs make our own TDs seem like Trappist monks. There was uproar in the House of Commons some years ago when it was revealed what MPs were claiming for. Sir Peter Viggers put in a claim of €1,645 for the purchase of a floating duck house for his garden pond, while Douglas Hogg claimed €2,200 to clear the moat at his stately home.

F is for Feminist

The suffragette Emily Davison hid in a cupboard in the Houses of Parliament during the night of the 1911 census of population. By doing so, she was able to record her address as “the House of Commons”, thus making her claim to the same political rights of men.

G is for Green benches

The benches of the House of Lords are red which denotes royalty. Members of the House of Commons have sat on green benches for hundreds of years. Nobody is sure why, but one theory holds that it was chosen because archers wore green, and it was the colour of the “common man”.

H is for Hats

Just before the House begins sitting, the inspector on duty in the Central Lobby shouts: “Hats off, strangers!” Traditionally members reserved their places in the chamber with a hat. But this system was reportedly disrupted by an Irish Member arriving in parliament with a “cab full of hats”.

I is for Irish

The Irish Parliamentary Party was a powerful force in Westminster in the decades leading up to World War I, winning 74 seats in the 1910 election. Under Charles Stewart Parnell, the party mastered the art of filibustering – delaying unfavourable legislation by speaking continuously.

J is for Johnson

Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson MP is still taken seriously in some quarters as a possible future leader of the Conservative party. Taking a hardline stance on Brexit this week, he used an impossible football metaphor: “We may be 1-0 down at this stage of the negotiation with the EU – but we can still win 2-0.”

K is for Kidnap

During the Queen’s speech at the opening of parliament, it is customary for an MP to be “kidnapped” and “held hostage” at Buckingham Palace. The original purpose was to ensure that the reigning monarch had a bargaining tool in case anything untoward happened to him or her in parliament.

L is for Liar

MPs are not allowed to accuse other members of lying, and the Speaker of the House of Commons clamps down strictly on those who disobey this rule. Members get around this rule by using a euphemism for a lie such as “terminological inexactitude”, a term originally coined in the House of Commons by Winston Churchill.

M is for Mace

The Mace is a gold staff which resides in the chamber when Parliament is in session, and it represents the authority of the Queen. Any debate that is carried out without the Mace in place is said to be without legal authority. Occasionally an MP has been known to run off with it.

N is for Norman French

If you are considering a career in the British parliament, a smattering of Norman French may be a help. The Houses carry out some of their business in the language, a legacy of parliament’s 11th-century origins. For example, if the Lords have agreed to a Commons bill, it carries the message: “A ceste Bille les Seigneurs sont assentus.”

O is for Order! Order!

Order is kept in the House of Commons by the headmasterly Speaker John Bercow. When the Speaker of the House is elected, he or she is physically dragged to the chair by two MPs – an historical reminder that nobody in their right mind wants to do the job. The Speaker has to ensure that government and opposition MPs are always two swords’ lengths apart. The are still purple ribbon hooks where members are supposed to leave their swords.

P is for Palace of Westminster

The Palace of Westminster is the official name of the sprawling parliamentary complex built on the site of William the Conqueror’s first palace. It was rebuilt in dramatic Neo-Gothic style in the 19th century after a fire. There are 100 staircases, more than 1,000 rooms and three miles of passages. The iconic clock tower which houses Big Ben was designed by Augustus Pugin, whose son designed Cobh Cathedral. Much of the building is in a dilapidated state, plaster work is crumbling and it is infested with vermin.

Q is for Queen

Queen Elizabeth officially appoints the Prime Minister after a general election. By tradition, she chooses the leader of the political party that wins the most seats in the House of Commons. She has had 13 PMs during her reign, starting with Winston Churchill in 1952.

R is for Rifle range

Until recently, the House of Lords boasted its own rifle range in case members wanted to fire off a few shots. The 25-yard range in the bowels of the building was founded in 1915 with the aim of “promoting a stronger sense of citizenship among members”.

S is for Snuffbox

Snuff, the powdered tobacco which is traditionally taken through the nose a “pinch” at a time, is kept by a doorkeeper in a wooden snuff box with a silver-plated lid at the threshold to the Commons chamber. It is the only form of tobacco allowed in the vicinity of the Commons.

T is for Titles

MPs are banned from referring to each other by name, and must not use “you” unless referring to the speaker. Instead they refer to an MP’s constituency using “the Honourable Member for …”, or if it is a senior MP, “the Right Honourable Member for…”. Members of the same party are most often called “my Honourable (or Right Honourable) friend”.

U is for Unparliamentary Language

Members can occasionally get away with insults. Michael Foot called Norman Tebbit a “semi-house-trained polecat” and Tony Banks MP said Margaret Thatcher had the “sensitivity of a sex-starved boa constrictor”. Ordinary swear words are obviously banned and it is considered bad form to accuse an MP of being drunk. Other words that have been considered off-limits over the years include “blackguard”, “git”, “guttersnipe”, “hooligan”, “rat”, “stoolpigeon” and “pipsqueak”.

V is for Vellum

Acts of parliament are printed on vellum. This is a parchment made from goatskin or sheepskin. The phrase “Going goat” is still used to describe the moment when the Queen’s Speech, printed on vellum, has to be finalised.

W is for ‘Who goes home?’

Two doorkeepers (one behind the Speaker’s chair and one in the Members’ lobby) simultaneously shout “Who goes home?” when the House rises. This is often explained as an invitation to MPs to join together in bands to cross what in the past were the dangerous unlit fields between Westminster and the City or to hire boats homewards on the Thames.

X is for X-Rated

Leinster House simply does not measure up with Westminster when it comes to sex scandals. From the time of the Profumo scandal, when a “showgirl” Christine Keeler was stepping out out with a married minister and a Soviet diplomat at the same time, affairs of state have filled the tabloids. More recently the peer responsible for overseeing standards of behaviour in the House of Lords was filmed as he reportedly snorted lines of cocaine during a “romp with two prostitutes”.

Y is for Youngest

Scottish nationalist Mhairi Black became the youngest MP since the 17th century when she was elected in 2015 at the age of 20. She is not impressed by Westminster at all – and says she “hates the place”.

Z is for Zzz

There was a time when members of the Commons or the House of Lords could sleep quite soundly on the backbenches without undue attention from prying cameras. The Duke of Devonshire was once reported as saying: “I dreamed that I was making a speech in the House of Lords. I woke up and found that I was.”

Iran says U.S. arm sales turning Middle East into 'tinderbox'

DUBAI (Reuters) – Iran’s foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Saturday that the United States is selling arms into the Middle East which were beyond the region’s needs, turning it into a “tinderbox”, state news agency IRNA reported.

“The level of arms sales by the Americans is unbelievable and much beyond regional needs and this points to the very dangerous policies followed by the Americans,” IRNA reported Zarif as saying.

Trump confirms chief of staff John Kelly will leave by end of year

Trump confirms Chief of Staff John Kelly will leave the White House ‘by the end of the year’ and thanks ‘the great guy’ for his service, saying his replacement will be announced soon

  • Trump said on Saturday that White House Chief of Staff John Kelly will depart
  • Kelly was reportedly no longer speaking with Trump and his exit was rumored 
  • A replacement for Kelly will be announced in the next day or two, Trump said 
  • Pence’s chief of staff Nick Ayers is Trump’s top replacement pick, a source says

President Donald Trump has said that his chief of staff, John Kelly, will be ‘leaving at the end of the year’.

Speaking to reporters on Saturday as he was leaving the White House to attend the Army-Navy football game in Philadelphia, Trump said an announcement on Kelly’s replacement would come in the next few days. 

‘John Kelly will leaving – I don’t know if I can say retiring – but he’s a great guy,’ Trump said. ‘John Kelly will be leaving at the end of the year. We’ll be announcing who will be taking John’s place – it might be on an interim basis. I’ll be announcing that over the next day or two, but John will be leaving at the end of the year. … I appreciate his service very much.’ 

It follows reports on Friday that Trump had stopped speaking to Kelly, the latest development in a relationship that frayed over retired Marine general Kelly’s struggles to bring order to the West Wing. 

Speaking to reporters on Saturday as he was leaving the White House to attend the Army-Navy football game in Philadelphia, Trump said that Kelly (right) would be out by the end of the year

    ‘NO COLLUSION!’ Trump slams Mueller’s Russia probe and…

Share this article

Kelly’s future in the Trump administration had been uncertain for nearly a year, ever since a report in February revealed domestic abuse allegations against former White House secretary Rob Porter, and raised questions about Kelly’s handling of the affair. 

The West Wing shake-up comes as Trump is anticipating the challenge of governing after Democrats take control of the House in January, and as he gears up for his re-election campaign in 2020. 

Kelly had been credited with imposing order on a chaotic West Wing after his arrival in June 2017 from his post as homeland security secretary. But his iron first also alienated some longtime Trump allies, and he grew increasingly isolated, with an increasingly diminished role.

Known through the West Wing as “the chief” or “the general,” the retired Marine Corps four-star general was tapped by Trump to replace Reince Priebus and try to normalize a White House riven by infighting and competing power bases. 

He entered a West Wing in chaos, firing short-tenured communications director Anthony Scaramucci in his first day as chief of staff.

Trump is seen with Kelly in his first day on the job as chief of staff on July 31, 2017. Kelly replaced Reince Priebus in the role as was initially expected to bring order to the West Wing

Kelly had early successes, including ending an open-door Oval Office policy that that had been compared to New York’s Grand Central Station and instituting a more rigorous policy process to try to prevent staffers from going directly to Trump. 

But those efforts also miffed the president and some of his most influential outside allies, who had grown accustomed to unimpeded access. 

Kelly’s handling of domestic violence accusations against Porter also caused consternation, especially among lower-level White House staffers, who believed Kelly had lied to them about when he found out about the allegations. 

Kelly, too, made no secret of the trials of his job, and often joked about how working for Trump was harder than anything he’d done before, including on the battlefield. 

In private, Kelly, whom friends said took the job out of a sense of duty to his country, cast himself as safeguarding the public from an impulsive and mercurial president. 

Reports of those conversations infuriated the president, who is especially sensitive of attacks on his competence and perceptions he is being managed. 

Kelly is seen in the Oval Office last month. His relationship with Trump had reportedly grown so frayed that in recent days the two men were no longer on speaking terms

In July, Trump tried to quell rumors of Kelly’s departure, making a point of announcing that he had asked him to stay on as chief of staff through 2020. 

But in recent months, reports suggested that Kelly’s role had become increasingly diminished, with key decisions being made without the chief of staff in the room. 

After Trump announced Friday he was picking a new U.S. attorney general and a new ambassador to the U.N., Kelly’s departure seemed all but certain.

Still, Trump’s casual revelation of the shakeup on the White House lawn, as he walked to Marine One, came as a shock to observers who expected a formal announcement.  

Nick Ayers, Vice President Mike Pence’s chief of staff, is widely believed to be Trump’s top pick for a replacement.

Ayers, 36, would be the youngest chief of staff since the Carter administration

Trump and Ayers were working out terms under which Ayers would fill the role and the time commitment he would make, a White House official said. 

Trump wants his next chief of staff to agree to hold the job through the 2020 election. 

Ayers, who has young triplets, had long planned to leave the administration at the end of the year, but he has agreed to serve in an interim basis through the spring of 2019. 

White House aides say Trump has developed confidence in Ayers, in part by watching the effectiveness of Pence’s largely independent political operation. 

Ayers also earned the backing of Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, the president’s daughter and son-in-law and senior advisers, for taking on the new role, White House officials said.

The latest White House shakeup inspired some Trump critics to dig up this 2012 tweet

The Georgia native’s meteoric rise in GOP politics included a successful stint at the Republican Governors Association, time as campaign manager for former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty’s failed White House bid and consultant work for dozens of high-profile Republicans, including Pence.

Ayers, 36, would be the youngest chief of staff since 34-year-old Hamilton Jordan served under Jimmy Carter. Kelly is 68.

The latest White House shakeup inspired some Trump critics to dig up an old tweet from 2012.

In it, Trump wrote: ‘3 Chief of Staffs in less than 3 years of being President: Part of the reason why @BarackObama can’t manage to pass his agenda.’

‘Avengers: Endgame’ Trailer Takes a Mournful Approach to Sequels

The Marvel Cinematic Universe bookended this week with trailers, dropping the second clip for “Captain Marvel” during “Monday Night Football,” then releasing the first look at “Avengers: Endgame” on Friday. And that may not be all: The first trailer for “Spider-Man: Far from Home” is expected to be released on Saturday.

After introducing Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, a.k.a. Captain Marvel, in September, Marvel rolled-out a follow-up explaining that she’s part of the Kree, a race of noble heroes in a seemingly endless war with the evil Skrull empire. The new clip also provided a peek at Annette Bening in a mysterious role as a scientist who tells Carol, “Your life began the day it nearly ended. We found you with no memory. We made you one of us, so you could live longer, stronger, superior. You were reborn.”

As Carol battles the Skrulls, she searches for answers about her earlier life on Earth and sees flashes of herself as a “Top Gun”-style fighter pilot. The action takes place in the 1990s, years before the cataclysmic events depicted in “Avengers: Endgame.”

Picking up after the cliffhanger ending of this year’s “Avengers: Infinity War,” the newest film in the M.C.U. leaves the surviving superheroes to pick up the pieces after Thanos (Josh Brolin) exterminated half the Earth’s population.

The trailer is long on mournful drama and short on action. Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) records a farewell message to his beloved Pepper Potts (an unseen Gwyneth Paltrow) as he drifts toward his apparent doom in outer space, while Captain America (Chris Evans) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) prepare for what he calls “the fight of our lives.”

“Captain Marvel” lands in theaters on March 8, while “Avengers: Endgame” will be unleashed on April 26.

Police seek person of interest in connection with death of Moncton woman

Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a Moncton woman who they say is a person of interest in the death of 35-year-old Candice Kennedy-Faguy.

In a news release on Thursday afternoon, New Brunswick RCMP said they are looking to speak with 43-year-old Amanda McFarlane. Police say she is believed to be in the Moncton area and they have made several unsuccessful attempts to contact her.

McFarlane is described as being about five-feet-two-inches tall and weighs about 120 pounds. She has brown hair and brown eyes.

Candice Kennedy-Faguy was found dead in a vehicle on West Lane on Sept. 26 and her death was ruled a homicide.

Claude Blanchard, 44, was charged with first-degree murder in connection with her death a few days later.

Police previously arrested a 47-year-old woman from Moncton for questioning. She was released a short time later.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Amanda McFarlane or the death of Candice Kennedy-Faguy is asked to contact New Brunswick RCMP or Crime Stoppers.

From overlining her lips to using a FLANNEL every day these are Victoria Beckham’s five beauty tips for looking young at 44

And it turns out the mum-of-four, 44, has some sneaky make-up and beauty tricks for winding back the clock and looking years younger than she is.

Victoria worked with make-up artist Wendy Rowe to make tweaks to her daily beauty routine that help her defy the ageing process.

Wendy revealed to Byrdie UK some of the incredible tips she gave Victoria, and anyone can replicate them at home in a few easy steps.

From ditching contouring to the creative way Victoria makes her eyes look wider, the make-up tricks are simple yet effective.

Here are some of the best secrets Posh follows…

She overlines her lips

Want to enhance your lips without getting surgery? It’s all in the lip liner.

Victoria is said to subtly overline her lips to make them stand out.

Wendy added: “We use Burberry Lip Colour Contour [to create] a fuller lip in the middle, which gives you the same polished feeling of a lipstick but without looking like you've got lipstick on.”

She uses eyeliner to make her eyes look wider

In order to enhance her eyes, Victoria has discovered that the key is in the colour of your eyeliner.

Wendy said: "I use beige eyeliner to widen the eye.

"We do dark kohl around the base of the lash [line], keeping the eyelid quite open and then do several coats of mascara for super-long, voluminous lashes."

Victoria added a subtle arch to her brows

In the past, Victoria has shown off fairly straight eyebrows.

But Wendy advised the star to ditch the look and reshape them into a subtle arch, to incredible effect.

She uses a cloth to exfoliate her skin

Victoria is said to use a humble cloth to exfoliate her skin when she travels.

She shared her simple hack to fans on her Snapchat, and thankfully it’s an affordable tip to follow.

Flannels can help to remove dead skin and exfoliate the face, leaving it looking fresh and youthful.

She left contouring behind

Contouring is so last year, or so thinks the former Spice Girl.

She has ditched the beauty trend and instead has incorporated new products into her routine.

These include cheek-plumping blushes and foundations that help her skin to glow.

Victoria Beckham turns heads in bright red frock as she throws Christmas party at her London fashion store.

Victoria has launched a YouTube channel as she starts ‘new chapter’ sharing beauty tutorials and styling tips.

Posh recently turned heads in her bright yellow co-ords while out on a date with her husband.

Yankees’ hitting splash possible even with focus on pitching

LAS VEGAS — The last time MLB held the Winter Meetings in the Devils’ Workshop, the Yankees landed lefty ace CC Sabathia and were well into discussions with A.J. Burnett that led to the right-hander coming to The Bronx for the 2009 season.

Those free-agent arms and the late December signing of first baseman Mark Teixeira played a big part in the Yankees winning the World Series for the first time since 2000. Now, the December flesh market opens Sunday at Mandalay Bay on the most famous strip in the world, and the Yankees are again prowling for pitching — starters and relievers.

And in a city built on the backs of losing gamblers and thrives on temptation, don’t ignore any talk of the Yankees being linked to free-agent infielder Manny Machado. They appear to be more interested in Machado than fellow high-priced (think $300 million-plus) free agent outfielder Bryce Harper, but when it comes to the Yankees anything is possible — as has happened with Roger Clemens, Alex Rodriguez and Giancarlo Stanton.

If the Yankees were completely turned off by Machado’s behavior during the postseason, managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner and GM Brian Cashman would have ruled him out by now, and they haven’t. This past week, manager Aaron Boone said running hard to first base isn’t the only way to judge a players’ effort.

“You hope all players all the time run things out, play hard or give it their all, but [that is] not necessarily the No. 1 thing I look at when I am defining whether a player is giving his all or is a gamer or [being in the lineup] and being a guy who grinds when it’s difficult behind the scenes,’’ Boone said. “Frankly, it is a little bit down the list as far as what I define what makes a player. My definition of a player who plays hard, who plays through adversity and is tough and brings things behind the scenes and has the ability to [be in the lineup] when it is not easy. Those are things that define playing hard a little more to me.’’

They won’t snag an in-his-prime Sabathia type, but having watched Patrick Corbin sign a staggering six-year deal worth $140 million with the Nationals, the Yankees have an interest in J.A. Happ, who is seeking a three-year deal, and they will keep an eye on Yusei Kikuchi, Dallas Keuchel, Charlie Morton and Lance Lynn.

All of them are free agents, but that isn’t the only route the Yankees can take to add a starter to the rotation — which consists of Luis Severino, Masahiro Tanaka, James Paxton and  Sabathia. There is trade interest in Indians right-hander Corey Kluber and possibly Trevor Bauer.

After closers Craig Kimbrel and Zach Britton — a spot already filled by Aroldis Chapman in the Yankees’ bullpen — Adam Ottavino, Andrew Miller, David Robertson and Joe Kelly are the most mentioned names among relievers who will draw attention. Cashman said early in the process he was looking to help the pen — which has Dellin Betances in front of Chapman and Chad Green to work before Betances, who is eligible for free agency after the 2019 season.

“Obviously, we have a number of things to accomplish that I consider heavy lifting. We need to fill our club out. Usually most things get concluded by the end of the Winter Meetings based on the last two years,’’ Cashman said before the Nationals landed Corbin, who many felt would sign with the Yankees. “Things have dragged out longer, but for the most part, now momentum will kick in for everybody — players, agents and clubs. Hopefully we will be in position to improve ourselves, but part of this is having patience. We don’t want to make a mistake and rush this process. If it takes longer, it takes longer. Optimally, you would like to get something done between now and the conclusion of Vegas.’’

Three goals for the Yankees

1. Get a starting pitcher.

J.A. Happ fits via free agency. Corey Kluber would be a big trade acquisition.

2. Get some relief.

Zach Britton is being shopped as a closer, and the Yankees have Aroldis Chapman. David Robertson is a free agent, and no guarantee he is returning. So there is a need for relievers to work in front of Dellin Betances and Chapman.

3. Decide what an acceptable return is for Sonny Gray.

The entire baseball universe knows GM Brian Cashman wants to deal the right-hander, and there will be teams will to snag him coming off a dismal New York experience.
