Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

Fangraphs | Jeff Sullivan: Jeff Sullivan works his way through an analysis of Brandon McCarthy's performance, exploring the mix of factors that make McCarthy a significant risk while also dangling tantalizing evidence that McCarthy could be a significant deal.

Beyond the Boxscore | Chris St. John: Chris St. John applies the JAVIER prospect rating system to pitchers, and finds the Yankee system a lot weaker than most fans might be willing to admit.

LoHud Yankee Blog | Chad Jennings: Ichiro Suzuki has every intention of playing baseball next season.

NY Post | Dan Martin: Ichiro isn't likely to play with the Yankees, because Chris Young just signed a one year, $2.5M deal.

Grantland | Tim Elfrink and Gus Garcia-Roberts | An in-depth look at Rob Manfred's career and how he ascended in MLB (including his role in the Alex Rodriguez suspension case) to eventually become its commissioner-elect.
