Wednesday Morning Links: 1/27/16

I fell down in the shower this morning.  Ass over tea kettle, right down into the tub.  I managed to not knock anything over, tear down the curtain, or hurt myself in the process, but I still laid there for a good 10-15 seconds basking in my stupidity and clumsiness.  I don't even know how it happened.  I haven't even slipped in the shower in years.  My early 30s continue to be a hoot.  Now onto the links. - Last Thursday, SG of RLYW released his first round of CAIRO projections for 2016.  They're encouraging for the pitching staff, less so for the lineup.

- On Monday, Jerry Crasnick of ESPN had a Q&A with Commissioner Manfred after his first year on the job.  Topics of conversation included Pete Rose, the DH in the National League, international draft, shortening of the season, and the new domestic violence policy.

- On Tuesday, Chad Jennings previewed the Yankees' non-roster ST invites position by position.

- Mike Axisa profiled Aaron Hill as a trade option to fill the last bench spot.  He's not a very good one.

- My good Twitter friend Wally Matthews wrote a piece about the Mets and Yankees becoming each other or something.  I'll withhold my thoughts on this out of respect for Wally and I's strong online relationship, but feel free to check it out and chime in with your take in the comments.

- Earlier this morning, el duque of It Is High... lamented the lack of Major League free agent activity in the wake of the Yankees signing MiL catcher Carlos Corporan.

Speaking of that, it's not a move that registers much with me and I'm sure a lot of people feel that way.  The Yankees have already beefed up on MiL catching depth this offseason and Corporan isn't being brought in to compete for Gary Sanchez's backup spot.  If anything, he's just more insurance for the eventual loss of Austin Romine after spring camp.  You can never have too much catching.

Have a good one today, gang.  If you haven't showered yet, try to stay on your feet in there.
