Dugout Digest – cleaning up the wrapping paper

I promise you, that's my last Christmas related pun. But anyway, a few teams got some Christmas presents this week!

-The Red Sox got a closer for the second straight offseason in Joel Hanrahan
-The Pirates got some more hope for the future with the Hanrhan trade and the signing of Francisco Liriano
-The Angels got a completely transformed franchise under Jerry Dipoto over the last two winters
-Everyone got new batting practice caps, some more attractive than others
Chipper Jones got a basketball hoop, then screwed up installing it.

Finally, if your team didn't get what they wanted for Christmas…well, I hope you don't need to look at the free agent market. It's a horror show out there.

Enjoy your offseason, everyone.
