The MLB Winter Meetings are underway and the Dodgers stole all of yesterday's headlines with their acquisition of Howie Kendrick, Brandon McCarthy and Jimmy Rollins. In other news, former White Sox pitcher Chris Bassitt gave away all his Chicago gear on TwitterDee Gordon was traded hours after attending a team charity event and Angels GM Jerry Dipoto showed his politeness when asked about the Mike Trout trade market.

Chad Kelly (nephew of Bills legend Jim Kelly) announced yesterday that he is headed to Ole Miss.​ Let's hope he learns to spell the team's name between now and the start of next season.

Odds & Ends

This Roger Goodell pizza story is pretty incredible. I definitely would've taken a slice ... This man was arrested after stealing roughly 42,000 golf balls from a local driving range over the last two years ... Nick Markakis took out a two-page ad in the Baltimore Sun thanking fans for their support ... Good stocking stuffers for the sports fan in your life ... Professional hockey teams eat an enormous amount of food ... How Jay-Z helped athletes wear the "I Can't Breathe" t-shirt ... Chris Rock compared Ben Roethlisberger to Bill Cosby ... Curling is all the rage in Brooklyn ...  Angelina Jolie is a "minimally talented spoiled brat," according to producer Scott Rudin ... I approve of MTV's choice of host for the 2015 Movie Awards. Though in all honestly, I will not watch a second of that show.
