A few weeks ago, I was talking to some friends who agreed to credential me as a member of the working media for the Winter Meetings. It seemed like a good opportunity since the meetings were close enough to drive and the Rays had so many open questions to address. But, some conflicts arose in my real job and I had to back out.
My currently hectic work schedule is the greatest thing that ever happened to the Winter Meetings. If I was in LBV and had to sit through all these rumors, winks, nudges, and whispers, I might go on a killing spree. Good thing I am safely sequestered in my office.
If you are interested in the latest non-news news, here is Marc Topkin’s summary from this morning’s paper.
My favorite part is Andrew Friedman telling Topkin he had a “very productive day.” Something tells me he is just having fun with the Our-Editors-Said-I-Have-To-Fill-10-Inches-on-Page-1 Crowd. If I were Friedman, I’d be having fun too.
As for me, I think I will wait and just post if and when something happens. Or maybe I will hire a 7th grade girl as a contributor and have her handle all the rumors.
