Daily Red Sox Links: Cody Ross, Rubby De La Rosa, Dan Haren

Jesse Johnson-US PRESSWIRE

The best Red Sox and baseball-related writing on the internets.

Cody Ross wants money. Sure, he probably wouldn't mind getting it in Boston, but if you want the Rossinator (Yeah, I just made up that up all on my own. You're welcome.) on the Red Sox in 2013 it's time to open up the checkbook and show him the money. (Alex Speier; WEEI.com)

Looking at some of the story-lines for the off season. (Jorge Arangule; Sports on Earth)

No more Disney Land. The San Francisco Giants just won the World Series so they get a super weirdo video made about them. (Dustin Parkes; The Score's Getting Blanked Blog)

Who are the most likely prospects from the Red Sox minor league system to be traded this off-season? There are quite a few actually. (Mike Andrews; Sox Prospects via ESPN Boston)

Here are all 37 playoff games reviewed by the always excellent Sam Miller. (Sam Miller; Baseball Prospectus)

What's going on with this here managerial landscape? OH NO! IT'S CHANGING!!! (Eric Seidman; Fan Graphs)

The Angels might be looking to trade Dan Haren and Ervin Santana. That could get interesting. (D.J. Short; Hardball Talk)

Remember when Johnny Damon had long hair, Pedro Martinez was The Man, and Curt Schilling wasn't a huge schmuck? All the way back to when the Red Sox were World Champs. It was all pretty sweet. (Red; Surviving Grady)

Allan at Joy of Sox would like to wish all you Red Sox fans a happy anniversary. (This was four days ago, but I couldn't resist.) (Allan; Joy of Sox)

Offense died in this post-season. So says Jeff Sullivan and he would know because he can sometimes be offensive. More pertinently he watched the games. Probably. (Jeff Sullivan; Fan Graphs)

Earlier this season, Craig Calcaterra wrote down the names of the players who claimed they'd reported to Spring Training in the best shape of their lives. They were the 2012 BSOTL guys, though for some reason Calcaterra calls them the BSOHL guys which I don't get. Why an H instead of a T? I'm missing something. Anyway he kept that list and now tells us how those guys did and how they did relative to what was expected of them. Did getting in the best shape of their lives help them? (Spoiler: No, of course not.) (Craig Calcaterra; Hardball Talk)

The Yankees have almost as many questions as the Red Sox, and their probable answers are often far more unsavory. (Cliff Corcoran; SI.com)

Baseball and GIFs: a match made in funny heaven. (Justin Bopp; Beyond the Boxscore)

Lastly, I wrote a piece for Baseball Prospectus reviewing the celebrations that took place during the post-season. It has pictures. (Matthew Kory; Baseball Prospectus)
