Outside The Confines: The quiet of the season

Lots of teams’ fans are hoping for some shiny new free agents before Santa comes.

As Hanukkah ends and the ticking clock down to Christmas gets closer to the big day, things are generally slowing down around baseball. Articles aren’t as frequent (don’t worry, we’ll still be giving you all your regularly scheduled BCB content!) but that means less breaking news to discuss and fewer stories to share.

With the season in mind (and the year we’ve all had drawing to a close) you may not see as much biting commentary on weekly news stories here, and as more positive ones bubble up I’ll be likely to promote those a bit more heavily this week.

I’m off from my day job for the week and spending some much needed down-time with my mom (no big family get togethers this year) but I would never leave you guys without some great content to read.

There WILL be new posts all week (even on Christmas Day, for which I have an idea), because everyone needs baseball in their lives, even now.

And with that, onto the links!

And tomorrow will be a better day than today, Buster. Make it so.
