Just a few thoughts around the Blogosphere for your perusal this Holiday Monday.

Chad Finn plays nine innings of Touching All The Bases, looking at how to fix the Yankees, (as a Birthday gift to George) an in-person look at Hanley Ramirez, the NESN taxi-squad, Peter Gammons‘ comments on Carl Everett (at the end of Gammons’ column) and several other items.

A post on Dave Doyle’s blog looks at how and why the NESN broadcasts have become unwatchable. The author however, (not Dave) seems to only address the main issues after making sure he doesn’t offend the people who are actually responsible for making the broadcasts what they are.

Football Outsiders and Cold Hard Football Facts have reviews of the NFL preseason publications.

Beth of Cursed to First is totally depressed about Keith Foulke and his “probably short-lived career in Boston.”

Jeff examines the Celtics depth chart as he sees it now (and plenty of other Celtics stuff) over at Celtics Blog.
