The Rule 5 draft tomorrow and then back on a plane. I’ve been covering the Winter Meetings regularly since 1998 and this has been the slowest.
Take away the Marlins-Tigers deal and this has been a yawner.
Most everybody blames this on the Johan Santana situation, but with the way contracts are these days it is harder and harder to trade.
Personally, I can see Santana, Erik Bedard and Dan Haren all staying put.
The Mets? They’ll do something minor in the next few weeks. No blockbuster. Then again, did you really think there would?
