Not a creature was stirring

It’s Christmas Eve, which means one more day until Santa brings all the best toys to all the good girls and boys. Where does that leave the Yankees? On the naughty list?

Not really.

Truth is, the Yankees opened their biggest gift early this year. When all of the baseball world expected CC Sabathia to opt out after the playoffs, the Yankees ace instead agreed to a contract extension that will keep him in the Bronx through at least 2016.

Not long after, the Yankees picked up their options on Nick Swisher and Robinson Cano, paying more than $5 million to assure that the key pieces of the American League’s second-highest-scoring offense will be back next season.

Up next was Freddy Garcia, re-signed to a reasonable one-year deal that helped satisfy Brian Cashman’s desire for a little veteran depth at the back of the rotation.

The stocking stuffers have been a couple of Rule 5 relievers and the rights to a utility infielder from Japan. The packages tet to be fully unopened are Jesus Montero, Manny Banuelos and Dellin Betances; the top prospects Cashman has refused to unload in a trade for a starting pitcher.

It’s been an unusually quiet winter for the Yankees — and it’s left plenty of fans begging for some sort of new, shiny toy under the tree — but the bulk of this roster was already assembled long before Santa began loading his sleigh. There wasn’t much to be done this winter, and so the Yankees haven’t done much. In so many ways, that’s a gift of its own.

Whether it’s a gift worthy of Santa remains to be seen.

As they say, the devil is in the details… And that could not be more true right here. Having said that, allow me reveal to you precisely what did deliver the results. The writing is definitely extremely engaging and this is possibly why I am making the effort in order to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, even though I can easily notice the leaps in reasoning you make, I am not really certain of how you seem to connect the ideas which help to make your conclusion. For right now I will, no doubt yield to your position but wish in the foreseeable future you connect your facts much better.

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
