The Hot Stove season doesn't get any hotter than the Winter Meetings. This practice (if you trust Wikipedia) started back in 1876, yet it is being touted as the 110th anniversary of the event by other sources. I'm not great at math, but that doesn't really seem to check out.
These days, we are able to get up to the minute news and analysis on the Winter Meetings thanks to Twitter. Twitter is a wonderful place to
find out what Harry Potter and Justin Beiber fans are up to get a whole lot of unfounded rumors and snarky breakdowns of baseball moves in real time.
On to the tweets!
Smart move, Rob. As David Mamet says, "Never trust a man in a bow tie."
Their four recent signings (Capuano, Kennedy, Harang, Hairston) accumulated 5.3 WAR in 2007 (Unfortunately, it's only -0.4 WAR if you take away Harang).
LOL, indeed. It's nice to see actual ballplayers get in on the snark.
Um, I guess this is important news... Thanks for the tip Leatherpants!
This should have "Source:" at the very beginning.
I really wish there would have been a picture attached to this.
Alright! Some actual news to report, let's keep it going (or not).
This might be the most "Twitter" report from the Winter Meetings so far. The only thing missing is a winky-face emoticon.
Okay, this shit is just getting ridiculous now.
Finally the Mystery Team shows up for the Winter Meetings, I was starting to get worried.
