Daily Red Sox Links: Jacoby Ellsbury, Nick Swisher, Curt Schilling

Elsa

The best in internet Red Sox and baseball-related writing, DRSL scoured the web over the holiday so you don't have to. Today, the Indians as a model for Jacoby Ellsbury, Nick Swisher as model for the Indians, and Curt Schilling as a model for the Hall of Fame.

The holiday is over and it's back to work for the Red Sox. There's no shortage of people telling them what they should do, either. For example:

Does Curt Schilling deserve enshrinement in the Hall of Fame? Jay Jaffe takes a look at the numbers. (Jay Jaffe; Sports Illustrated)

As a BBWA member for 10 years, Peter Abraham has a Hall of Fame vote. He used that vote in favor of eight players. Here are his explanations. (Peter Abraham; The Boston Globe)

Is the way the Cleveland Indians handled Shin-Soo Choo a model for the Red Sox and Jacoby Ellsbury? (Ben Shapiro; Red Sox Monster)

Nick Swisher joins the Indians. Really? The Indians? (Jeff Sullivan; Fan Graphs)

Has Joel Hanrahan been getting lucky? And if so, can he sustain it? Yikes! (Brian MacPherson; The Providence Journal)

The Hot Stove has kinda sucked. (Eric Nusbaum; The Classical)

What if Santa really did bring a present to each and every kid? What kind of staff would that really require? Quite a big one, actually. (Oregon Public Radio)

And, a delicious eggnog recipe. (Portland Food and Drink)

Finally, a most hearty Happy Holidays to everyone out there in internet reader land from me and, if I may be so bold, everyone here at OTM.
