Exciting day, no?! The General Manager Meetings are starting tomorrow in Southern California and while nothing really ever happens at the GM Meetings it’s still an offseason highlight, because it’s baseball related, you know. And there’s not enough of that right now.
What? There was an election? Oh. That’s kind of exciting, I guess. Not nearly as exciting as the GM Meetings, though. It’s pretty much party time if you are a) a GM b) a blogger who likes GMs (that is, yours truly – I’m sorta of the only one). I have no idea what Sabean is up to these days, but I figure he’ll probably be very prominently wearing his World Series ring from 2010, because he doesn’t get that many opportunities to show that to Jon Daniels, right?
In Jon Daniels news, he announced that Alexi Ogando is going to be back in the rotation next year which I wholeheartedly agree with. Now if he would just hurry up and run for president with Yu Darvish as his VP, there would be magic sparkles and candy for all. Only partially kidding.
I don’t except we’ll hear any substantial Josh Hamilton news for a good long while, but it’s sure to be one of the big ones on the rumor mill this week and going forward. I mean, hasn’t it been the biggest one on the rumor mill since, like, July? I remember perfectly legitimate baseball sites putting out stories that he was coming to the Giants this past summer, which kind of freaked me out because if that was preordained all those months ago, then I seriously doubt I have any say in what I wear tomorrow. There’s logic in there somewhere.
Anyhow, I have broccoli and guacamole to attend to so there is nothing keeping me here. Catch you all later.
