Friday Afternoon Linkapalooza: 10/30/15

My boss was in town this week, so I had to make my internet presence scarce and pretend to be a good, caring cube monkey.  He's on a flight back to the east coast this morning and I think the best way to shake off the blog rust is with a new linkaround.  Let's get to it. - On Monday, Nick Shlain of BP Bronx reviewed the relatively strong roster foundation in place for next year and how that makes shoring up second base an even greater need this offseason.

- On Tuesday, Ben Farber of Pinstripe Alley looked back at the history of presidential first pitches in Yankee games.  The Bush one in the '01 World Series is still a classic.

- On Wednesday, Mike Axisa of RAB recapped the up-and-down season of fan favorite second baseman Stephen Drew.

- On Thursday, Chris Carelli of Yankees Unscripted recapped Andrew Miller's terrific debut Yankee season on the heels of him winning the American League Mo Award this week.

- Chad Jennings of LoHud mused on the possibility of the Yankees building a super bullpen around the few strong pieces already in place.  I'd support that move.  Help spread the high-leverage workload around a little bit.

From the IIATMS team:

- On Tuesday, Scott and Stacey debated both sides of the "should Yankee fans be rooting for the Mets in the World Series?" argument.

- Stacey handed out a big batch of thank yous to the Yankees for all the great 2015 moments.

- On Thursday, Stacey mused on a variety of Yankee and World Series-related topics.

- On Friday, Dom presented the IIATMS staff ideas on what to do for the 2016 season.  Lot of different options and opinions in there.

Big week for Stacey while I was on the bench.  She was Murphy to my Wright.

Enjoy your weekends, everybody.  Hope you've got some good Halloween costumes ready.  Mine's pretty lame, a fat guy in sweatpants sitting on a couch eating a bowl of candy.
