My first few hours of the General Managers meetings have tought me this: It’s nice to have a cell phone with Internet access. Checking email and such seems to be a pretty important part of this event.
Most everyone seems to be just arriving. Some writers are just getting here. Front office people will be trickling in throughout the day. There hasn’t been much excitement so far. The only front office personnel I’ve seen has been John Hart, the former Texas Rangers GM who now does a lot of work for MLB Network.
As more people get here, I’m sure there will be more to discuss. Right now, it’s just a bunch of writers standing in a hotel lobby, sipping coffee and playing on their cell phones.
