Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.

First Pitch: Hanrahan a Recent Example of Why You Sell High on Relievers

Joel Hanrahan has been removed as the Red Sox closer. Back when the Joel Hanrahan trade happened, there were a lot of complaints that the Pittsburgh Pirates didn’t get enough in return and should have held on to Hanrahan until the trade deadline to get a better return. Today, after a rough start with Boston, and after a trip to the disabled list with hamstring problems, Hanrahan...

New Year, Better Closers

The Sox are a much different team from the train wreck of a team last year. Want proof? Look at the closers. Andrew Baily has been 5 for his last 5 in save opportunities, according to the Herald. But Bailey wasn't even the team plans as a closer when they got Joel Hanrahan in December, according to the Herald, but he was called into action as a closer after Hanrahan went down...
