New Year, New Rangers

Shake off that hangover, fellas.

Some emails between Alex Rodriguez and Yankees president Randy Levine have been made public, and if you ever wanted to see what it looks like when someone tries to manage someone who makes many multiples of their income it's worth a read. "My focus and direction, as well as that of the entire Yankees organization, has been, and continues to be, to treat you in the same manner as we do all of our players, to have you healthy and ready to play as soon as possible. Here are some steroids, as well as several gallons of virgin's blood, a gross of pluripotent stem cells and Vernon Wells' immortal soul." I may have made that last part up, but it's not that far off.

Lift the Parting Glass to Nelson Cruz, who got a call on the ski slopes from Jon Daniels wishing him good luck in his future endeavors on December 21.

Evan Grant continues his analysis of the 2014 Rangers roster by looking at Neal Cotts.

Richard Durrett takes a look at the young players who need to grow into crucial positions this year.

Finally, since I referenced The Parting Glass, here's a commercial I saw recently and really liked. It reminded me of Don Draper's Glo-Coat spot in that it has an actual narrative, and I enjoyed the unironic presentation of male friendship.
