Remember what I said yesterday about two to three feet of snow being dumped on NYC? Yeah, that didn't happen. The New England area got hit a lot worse than we did. In non weather related news, Ichiro Suzuki's one year deal with the Miami Marlins is now official. Farewell Ichiro.
Comments of the Day
If anyone knows all about "special balls," it's Alex Rodriguez
Your 2015 New York Yankees, ladies and gentlemen.
Who would the Joker be in this scenario?
All the batters need to do is beat that shift like it owes them money!
The news that MLB is blocking Yoan Moncada did not go over well.
Again, Manfred being a Yankee fan just isn't a ringing endorsement to me.
Go Win's take got high praise yesterday.
Seriously. If his username were referring to COTD awards, he indeed won!
GIF of the Day
Farewell Ichiro. Good luck in Miami.
Yoan Moncada. Get it done, Cash.
Honorable Mod Mention
John Beck earns the HMM award for his take on Mark Teixeira and the shift! It might be quite the topic of discussion moving forward.

My original Hans Zimmer SOTD idea was to use Dream Within A Dream, but that's been blocked quite heavily. Still though, Time is a pretty great track. Dream Is Collapsing also could have worked. It's elementary, my dear Pinstripe Alley reader. As always, please link us your Song of the Day.
Feel free to use this as your open thread for the day. Or maybe this COTD thread is all a dream...
