MLB.com | Bryan Hoch: Sir Didi Gregorius is widely known to be the best human being on planet Earth. It’s actual and factual. Sir Didi decided to spend the holiday season doing what he does best; spreading joy and cheer throughout New York City. He stopped at Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital to deliver presents dressed as an elf. He went into the Rockefeller Plaza area to hand out gifts and high fives to the children. There’s not much more to say about the man, but I’m sure he’ll give us something in the future.

Cut4 | Jessica Kleinschmidt: GREG BIRD! If you’re big Greg Bird fans, you probably know that he has a cat named Mr. Delicious. Bird is quite fond of that cat. On the first episode of a new show called The Dish, Bird discussed his cat and showed that they have matching Christmas sweaters, because of course they did. Tis the season, after all.

ESPN.com | Andrew Marchand: By now, you’ve probably noticed a bit of a Christmas theme to this link dump. Even though the headline and photo in Marchand’s article are also X-Mas themed, the meat of the piece regards how Brian Cashman completely overhauled the entire Yankees’ organization, from top to bottom, in the matter of two to three years. Give this a read.

Deck The Calls: As a final Christmas gift to you all, here is a video compiling the best TV and radio calls of the 2017 Yankee season. It’s been quite an amazing year for the Bronx Bombers. Here’s to a successful and joyous 2018 season.
