Baseball Winter Meetings
With baseball awash in record revenue as the signing season starts, Scott Boras compares the habits of teams to families sifting through supermarket shelves.
Baseball’s winter meetings open Monday, a four-day session that often turns into a fan’s delight. There’s always the promise of blockbuster trades and major free-agent signings
Yankees Manager Joe Girardi met with reporters Wednesday at the Winter Meetings, discussing among other topics the pursuits of Cliff Lee and Carl Crawford.
While the Mets explore their options, including listening to offers for Carlos Beltran and Francisco Rodriguez, they continue to search for the cost-effective solutions for 2011.
Mets manager Terry Collins addressed the media Monday and discussed a number of topics.
Darek Braunecker arrived at the Winter Meetings. If you don’t know his name yet, where have you been hiding? He is the agent for Cliff Lee and is therefore more popular than Mickey Mouse this week at Disney.
I barely unpacked my bags before the Nationals lifted the lid on these Winter Meetings, and boy did they get things going with a bang. Jayson Werth stays in the NL East, going to the Nationals for 7 years, $126 million dollars.
Having just about finalized new contracts to keep Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman headed to the winter meetings on Sunday night targeting a new player.
