Winter Meeting Primer

The tweets, texts and news flashes will be a plenty starting Monday morning. How should you act?  Remember that last year, no major deals were made until after the meeting so this week is more of a sounding board.

This year, I believe the "meeting" will be in a convention center, last year they were in Vegas and everyone was on the main floor of the Bellagio Hotel walking between the lobby area to where the elevators were located. There will be a press area in case of  a special announcement (last year it was Maddux's retirement)

If you ever get a chance to go and you like hunting down baseball media types, then this is the place for you.

I am sure at some point, bloggers like TBLA will be able to get credentialed, I understand that once a day, the Dodgers will bring the local papers covering the team up to the room for an update. That was last year and I will be interesting to see if that remains the case.

With everyone fighting to break a story, I think there will be a lot of misinformation being floated out there, remember that in the past Ned has tended to play his cards close and will often surprise you with what deal he makes.  This year, the surprise will be if they make any signings at all.
