It's January 25 already, somehow

So the big personnel news in baseball today: the Yankees traded Adam Ottavino and a prospect to the Red Sox in a salary dump move. Just goes to show you: even expensive reliever deals for guys with well-publicized, process-driven breakouts will bite you and make you lose prospects to try to claw back some space under the luxury tax threshold. Boo hoo.

Can you believe that's only the second trade that Brian Cashman has made with the Red Sox? It's not like he's a naif of a GM or anything.
