Here are a few more links from today:
- Javier Vazquez will make his 2010 debut tonight against the Rays (more on that later). Make sure you check out this nice feature on him by Tyler Kepner of the NY Times.
- A writer at At Home Plate thinks the Yankee dynasty may be over soon. Please, somebody tear him up in the comments before I do.
- The Angels are remembering the late Nick Adenhart tonight when they will give Jered Weaver the inaugural Nick Adenhart Award.
- Kepner also wrote about how the Red Sox lineup has less power, but more patience. If you want to learn your rival, this is what you read.
And two hilarious videos heading into the weekend.
