A.J. Burnett... Pittsburgh... probably gonna happen... yada, yada, yada
- Assuming the trade happens, where would Burnett rank in terms of all-time Yankees busts? (Hey, he stayed healthy, which is more than Carl Pavano can say.)
- Some of the early arrivals to Tampa include The Captain, Manny Banuelos, Dellin Betances, Justin Maxwell, Ivan Nova, Ramiro Pena, Dave Robertson, Austin Romine and Cory Wade, according to LoHud.
- Alex Belth profiled one of the forgotten new members of the team: RHP Hiroki Kuroda. It's a really great read that deserves your attention.
- EJ Fagan previewed the 2012 bullpen over at TYA.
- It looks like Hector Noesi will finally get a real shot to be a starter in Seattle.
- David Ortiz and the Red Sox agreed on a one-year, $14.6M contract.
- I get dozens of emails each week about one thing or another to promote, but this one is actually unique and intriguing: A place to find (and then play) recreational sports in your area. We spend so much time watching sports that we often forget that they began because people enjoyed playing them.
