Another slow news day around MLB. Sigh...
On to the links.
- The Phillies should make the next step in honoring Dick Allen by creating a statue of him for display.
- A good piece here about J.T. Realmuto and his framing improvement since he joined Philadelphia (I’ll also link this, what I wrote about Realmuto and his framing back in 2019).
- MLB could see some serious changes as spring training inches ever closer.
- The Red Sox have made official the first Black woman as a coach at any level of professional baseball.
- According to Jeff Passan ($), MLB might be waiting for the inauguration of Joe Biden before the market starts moving.
- It’s a link to a podcast, but hey, this is really interesting: what is the greatest pitch in baseball history?
- Here is the perfect landing spot for each of the major free agents still on the market.
