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. “There’s a lot of interest circulating all offseason,” he said. “But it’s just finding the right situation, really.”   But his communication with the Sox this offseason has been limited.   “A little bit,” he said. “I talked to [new manager John] Farrell a couple times. Haven’t heard back yet. But I talked to him over the phone and saw him at a pitching talk in Falmouth. But then haven’t really talked to him.”   Hill last talked to Farrell at a fundraiser for the Falmouth Commodores of the Cape Cod League earlier this month.  “Any time you can talk about pitching in January, it’s always fun,” he said.   His elbow is completely healthy now, he said, and he has no restrictions on throwing. He is on a normal program, with no restrictions. CSNNE: Rich Hill: "I am 100% Healthy" It was a great sight to see Rich Hill last season after seeing his season end two years in a row when he was starting to cement himself as the 7th inning guy. Plus it's that much more better to root for a local guy that makes it on the hometown club (which is part of the reason we dealt with Mark Bellhorn striking out 200 times).  Even with this bullpen being stacked on paper, we all know that there isn't such a thing as having too many pitchers. The Sox declined to give him arbitration, but he should be considered to make this bullpen that much better. Usually a year removed from Tommy John surgery a pitcher comes back better than ever. So here's hoping that the Sox bring him back and that this time Hill gives us more than the 31 2/3 innings pitched over the past three seasons. And again, with him being in hometown colors, his comeback would be that much sweeter.  Globe: Ranking the Red Sox | Kalish expected to be out at least six months | Herald: Varitek doesn't want in on bullpen  | WEEI: Salty, Red Sox deal with loss of Tuck | Precedent suggests five-month surgery for Kalish
