Gearing up for Wednesday at the Winter Meetings

Dec 9, 2009, 7:12 AM EST

Each night the bar and lobby scene at the Winter Meetings lasts a bit longer, which in turn means that the morning starts a bit later. It takes a bit longer for the press room to fill up and the tweets to start flying. The line at Starbucks is deeper and deeper.  I bet I could make a killing selling the aspirin I have in my bag at inflated prices . .  .

Yesterday was dominated by the Curtis Granderson deal and the Peter Gammons news. Less noticed — because of the late hour and the lower star-power wattage — was Ross Gload signing with the Phillies.  Otherwise the day involved a couple of formalities and a lot of rumor mongering.

I’d expect the rumor mongering to continue today, as there is increasing speculation that Roy Halladay and Jason Bay could find themselves in new uniforms before we all leave Indianapolis.  I’m a little dubious — the Halladay thing is gonna take time — but that won’t stop the chatter. Our job?  To cut through the chatter as best as possible, putting lie to the baloney and getting there firstest with the mostest in terms of analysis.

As I said yesterday: refresh often, my friends.

    Instead of trying to get cash for your aspirin, you should trade it for inside scoops and exclusive access. That could be your key to ruling these winter meetings…
