Even the Internet is slower than usual on Day 1

No kidding, word is that the Internet is somehow broken throughout the city of Milwaukee. That’s honestly the rumor in the hotel lobby. The only way anyone can connect is through their phones or air cards, so a slow morning has gotten even slower through a lack of technology.

Not that any of us has much to report.

Things are generally quiet (as expected). Jose Reyes is being discussed a little bit, but that’s mostly reporters speculating with one another. The collective bargaining agreement seems to be the biggest topic of discussion, and Joel Sherman reported late this morning that Type B free agents might be eliminated this offseason — so much for an arbitration offer to Freddy Garcia — but apparently teams were assured that Type A compensation will remain the same this winter.

Otherwise, significant news has been slow and hard to find. All of the GMs are meeting with reporters later this afternoon.
