Just a few links to start the new year

My guess is today won’t be very productive for anyone. I’m at my friend Jonathan’s house, where we’ll probably mix some football with the DVD of It Might Get Loud. I don’t expect any Yankees news today, but you never know.

To pass some time on what I hope is a relaxing day for everyone, here are a few links that have nothing to do with Gilbert Arenas.

• The Yankees-Red Sox rivalry has apparently extended to the ice. (thanks to Steven for emailing the link)

• St. Louis manager Tony LaRussa seems to be expecting the Cardinals to make a move soon. His latest tweet could be a not-so-veiled reference to a Matt Holliday signing.

• Good news for one Yankees prospect: Jose Ramirez was named the year’s top short-season starter. (thanks Michael)

• Bad news for another Yankees prospect: Power-hitting corner infielder Brandon Laird was arrested.

• No surprise, the Angels are interested in Aroldis Chapman. The ESPN story indicates that Angels first baseman Kendry Morales, himself a Cuban refugee, has become friends with Chapman. You think Juan Miranda knows Chapman?

• It has nothing to do with the Yankeees, but here’s a pretty cool baseball story about a guy who saw Josh Gibson play.

Enjoy the day everyone.
