Newsday | David Lennon: The Rays and Red Sox were not allowed to trade David Price or Jon Lester to the Yankees.

SB Nation | Grant Brisbee: The Yankees and Braves are two teams that still contend every year, despite being made up of old, underperforming, zombies.

New York Times | David Waldstein: Alex Rodriguez is attempting to repair his image and relationship with MLB so as to allow him to have a future in the sport.

Fangraphs | Jeff Sullivan: Brett Gardner is hitting for more power because pitchers are not adjusting to his new approach and are basically daring him to do more damage.

Baseball America | Matt Eddy: Ichiro Suzuki and Alex Rodriguez have had the best tools in baseball since 2000.
