Quiet start to the meetings
By now, everyone has a feel for the set-up here at the Marriott and the adjoining Westin, which along with a convention center across the street are serving as the setting for this year’s Winter Meetings. The Starbucks have all been identified and so have the bars. Now all we need is some action to occupy the dozens of scribes, scouts and baseball officials milling around the lobby.
Mariners GM Jack Zduriencik and fellow former Brewers associates Tony Blengino and Tom McNamara spent some time in the lobby this morning, as did Cubs skipper Lou Piniella (who probably has Milton Bradley on his mind) and his White Sox counterpart, Ozzie Guillen. No sign of the Brewers’ crew this morning.
