Here and There
Writing about what’s happening at the winter meetings in this space isn’t very reasonable or practical or sensible. Things change so much that it is best that you check mlb.com and other websites.
Rumors are everywhere and are a moving target. Seems as if there’s a rumor war going on between websites.
Notes and anecdotes……..
**A reminder that the World Series trophy will be on display this Saturday and Sunday. We continue to work on plans for a trophy tour after the first of the New Year.
