On the eve of the winter meetings, Dave Cameron has created a handy dandy list on Twitter for following our local baseball press, and keeping USS Mariner’s servers free from the crazy. For my part, I don’t really remember this much excitement in Seattle surrounding the meetings last winter. There was anticipation, sure, but this feels like gearing up for a really large party, or going on a first date.
It is disappointing that Jason Bay rumors still abound, but maybe this will work in our favor – everyone is going to think we’re going for Bay, and we’ll come out of it with something far superior under everyone’s noses, and out of nowhere. Because Jack Zduriencik is a ninja, and that’s how he rolls.
The RedWings won, by the way, after the Seahawks managed to pull it out of the bag against the 49’ers with only a little bit of time left on the clock. Detroit’s win was more than a bit sloppy, slow-moving, and frankly not very exciting, but the food, beer, and company was nice, at the very least.
I expect to wake up to untold amounts of online chaos tomorrow morning. Bring it on, I’m ready!
