Today was the beginning of the winter meetings at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, and while there was much hemming and hawing through day 1, there wasn’t a whole lot that got accomplished. Casey Blake is probably returning to the Dodgers, Adam Everett is going to the Tigers and the Twins, as always, are being tied to several players they probably won’t acquire. Its a typical case of the winter meetings
That said, how awesome is it that the meetings are in Vegas? Here’s hoping that, at some point, a copious amound of alcohol is consumed and a few absolutely ludicrous moves are made. Perhaps the Braves can add Rick Ankiel. As a pitcher. Maybe the Twins will get the Cubs to send Aramis Ramirez up to Minnesota in exchange for the 87 World Series banner. The Dodgers could end up playing in Aneheim this year, while the Angels move to Chavez Ravine. Maybe, just maybe, we could see our first 50 player trade, with all of the Mariners going to Pittsburgh for all of the Pirates.
Yes, the winter meetings will be exciting.
