Saw this note from the meetings and thought it of interest:
Hmmm, I wonder which the Reds were.On Tuesday, each general manager stood up during their meeting and stated what their offseason goals were. Many mentioned specific players they were making available. The idea was suggested by Boston's Theo Epstein and Florida's Larry Beinfest, co-chairs of this year's meeting.
"Usually it takes a while to be able to reach all 29 other teams and hear what they're trying to do. This increased our efficiency tremendously. It saves us all a lot of time,'' Epstein said. "Some teams were specific. Some were more guarded.''
For my part, here's hoping WK was a little more open as a means of getting some dialogue started. Nice idea by Epstein and Beinfest.
