Happy New Year, LL readers! While Mariners' fans are certainly looking forward to what 2015 could bring, let's look back a little bit at what has been happening around baseball recently:

  • Former MLB pitcher Brett Myers (retired following the 2013 season) is now a singer, apparently.
  • The Rays have signed infielder Asdrubal Cabrera to a one-year deal.
  • The Rockies have signed catcher (and Kirkland, WA native) Nick Hundley to a two-year deal.
  • The Reds have acquired outfielder Marlon Byrd from the Phillies.
  • The Cubs have signed outfielder Chris Denorfia (Mariner in 2014, something I almost forgot).
  • Jeff Sullivan at U.S.S. Mariner sees the Denorfia signing and wonders what that means about Justin Ruggiano and the Mariners.
  • Jeff Sullivan at Fangraphs wonders what Cabrera's signing with the Rays means for other players on the Rays' roster, such as Ben Zobrist.
  • David Schoenfield of ESPN SweetSpot looks at the Hall of Fame cases of 15 current MLB players.
  • Grant Brisbee lists each American League team's biggest roster holes heading into 2015 (and here's the link for the NL version).
  • Drew Fairservice wonders what the heck the Yankees are up to this offseason.
  • Perhaps Ken Griffey Jr.'s biggest accomplishment no longer has anything to do with baseball.
