SnakeBytes: Silent Night edition

Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

Outside of Tanaka, not a lot of Diamondbacks news this past week, for obvious reasons, but let's round up the nuggets of more or less tangential interest to the team.

Moderately D-backs related

Slightly D-backs related

Not D-backs related

  • Of course, we all knew they were fans, as their discography proves. Who can forget songs like All You Need is Glove or Yellow Submarine Pitcher?
  • [Miami Herald] American baseball players thriving in Venezuela - "It's about six weeks before pitchers and catchers report to spring training in the U.S., but in Venezuela, the nation's fiercely competitive professional league is in full swing, and it's drawn the biggest contingent of American players in decades."
  • R.A. Dickey's knuckleball, colorized [H/T /r/baseball]

  • [Denver Post] Medicinal marijuana striking out in Major League Baseball "There is no provision in MLB's collective bargaining agreement with the players to allow use of marijuana for medicinal reasons. That frustrates agent Joshua Kusnick, who represents Jeremy Jeffress, a pitcher with the Toronto Blue Jays. Jeffress suffers from epilepsy. The seizures from that disease nearly ruined his career and could have cost him his life, until he discovered that marijuana helped him control his condition."
  • Finally, not baseball related at all, but undeniably WTF. These are the Ross sisters from the 1944 film Broadway Rhythm. It starts getting odd about a minute in. Remember: no CGI.
