The GM Meetings aren’t an official media event of Major League Baseball like the much larger Winter Meetings, which will be in Nashville next month. There are no credentials and teams don’t send their PR people to coordinate things. But a lot of reporters do attend and it can be worthwhile.
There’s even a small stage and podium set up in case a team wants to make an announcement.
For the writers, there’s a lot of hanging around the lobby while calling and texting team executives and agents.
I’ll update the blog whenever there’s something worthy to report.
