Monday Morning Links: Football, A-Rod, Eiland, Top 50 Yankees, Orioles Murder Suspect, And The Enemy

I'm filling in for Ed today, as he has a lot to cover over at the Giants site Big Blue View.

Alex Rodriguez has joined a fight against steroids, and is doing it secretively.

Earlier this offseason we heard that Dave Eiland had taken a job with the Rays. Marc Topkin has the details on that job. An interesting quote:

Also, sharing any secrets on how to beat his previous team, the Yankees.

"Absolutely, whatever I can give ’em to help, I can do that," Eiland said. "And I’ve got plenty of them. They’re the enemy now."

Not surprising, any player or employee would likely to do the same. Isn't that why Woodhead became a Patriot?

Nick Cafardo lists the Yankees among bargain hunters and January trade candidates.

Mike Silva puts together his top 50 Yankees of all time.

Orioles reliever Alfredo Simon is being accused of murder in Dominican Republic. Knowing the Orioles, he will win the closers job in April.

Finally, an article that you wouldn't think has to do with the Yankees, but definitely does. Elliot Johnson could win a utility job with the Rays this season. Why does that matter? Johnson is the man that launched a vicious attack on Francisco Cervelli, sparking a war that would last one hundred days and one hundred nights. (Trying to add to the drama, as this is Cervelli) Johnson broke Cervelli's wrist in Spring Training on a play at home plate. I now only refer to him as "The Enemy."

Questions of the week: If the Yankees could sign 5 current free agents, which 5 would you want them to go after? If you weren't a Yankees fan, which team would you like? Favorite non-Yankee Stadium stadium?
