For at least a few days, the MLB offseason sprung to life, with the Hall of Fame announcement coming Tuesday and news of talks between MLB and the MLBPA coming earlier in the week. Things have calmed down again, but winter at least seems to have a bit of life now.
On the site today, Matt breaks down an interesting day in the career of Lou Gehrig, and Peter analyzes the most recent reporting on the negotiations between the league and the players. We’ll also see the latest entry in our Yankees Smartest Moves series, the Johnny Damon signing ahead of the 2006 season, Jon takes a look at Luke Voit’s offseason training, and Josh does a deep dive on Alex Rodriguez’s famously poor 2006 postseason run.
