As far as I remember they didn't discuss EE/Aurilia or the fifth starter spot. I think Hudson was mentioned in passing as being a guy that could make the team with a good spring, not sure though so don't quote me on that.
Lance asked him if he had been interviewed for the permanent spot yet and Kullman said he didn't want to comment on anything relating to the GM hiring process.
Lance asked him about LTC for Dunn and he said they had spoken to the agent a few times but nothing had come to fruition there. Said they really want to avoid going to arbitration with Adam because when they go there the team is going there with the express purpose of winning and sometimes there are hurt feelings that linger from that process when the player hears the club talking about their negatives. Brought up Adam's K's as something the club would present at an arbitration hearing although he did say that in the grand scheme of things he didn't think strikeouts were a big deal.
Said Paul Wilson looked great the other day and should be ready to go this spring.
Very bluntly said that losing contact guys and good situational hitters like Casey and Randa hurts the team.
As Crackerjack mentioned he made the comment that he would go to Chambliss and tell him to find ways to make the offense even more efficient than it was lat year.
Said he would like to be a part of this organization and stay on even if he didn't get the permanent GM position.
