Baseball's "Whimper" Meetings Drone On In FL

Pierzynski Breaks Up The Monotony At The Winter Meetings
This year's baseball Winter Meetings are about as scintillating as a dramatic reading of Joe Biden's most memorable speeches.

Hundreds of media hounds are swarming across central Florida looking for tidbits of news—anything really—that remotely resembles something interesting. You gotta figure that when Bobby Valentine is one of the most quoted people, you're in a serious news vacuum. Wake us up when the truck leaves for Ft. Myers.
