    November 15, 2010:
    Yep, it’s only 2 weeks in…

    And only about 14 more to go…CRAP…

    But the General Manager’s are heading to Florida for their Annual meetings which begin tomorrow, and there already seems to be some activity brewing. Now, that isn’t to say that a deal is going to get done anytime soon, but the annual dance between clubs, players, and the agents has definitely begun….

    Theo weighs in on the GM meetings: “I think typically the (GM) Meetings are very helpful to lay the foundation for future deals…There’s a lot of information exchanged…you have all 30 GMs under the same roof, which can only help, and it’s almost like a starter’s flag goes off for teams and agents to get serious about the winter.”

    Oh, and if you were wondering. The whole “Let’s focus on not giving runs up, rather than scoring them”? Didn’t really work out. OK, to be fair, some of the best defensive players the Sox have (read: Youk & Pedroia) were injured, and the Sox were often playing with Quad A players, but they still ended up pretty much at the bottom of the barrel. Based on stat guru Bill James’ website the Sox were only better than the KC Royals in the AL (yep, 13th in the league. And where the Sox were the worst?

    And, it’s that time of the year, where the Boston Baseball Writers give out their hardware. So far, Ron Washington of the Rangers had been selected as their recipient of the Manager of the Year Award, with San Fran’s GM Brian Sabean garnering the Executive of the Year award.

    If you’re interested, the dinner will be held once again at The Westin Copley Place Hotel in Boston, on January 20, 2011. Tickets are $150 apiece and can be purchased with a credit card by calling Rusty Sullivan at 617-624-1237, or by mailing a check payable to The Sports Museum, 100 Legends Way, Boston, MA 02114…Makes the PERFECT Christmas Gift!

    Well, it doesn’t look like DeMarlo Hale will be leaving the Sox–at least not to go to the Mets: The word around town is that he is not on the short list for the skipper post of the other NY team, which Bob Melvin, and Terry Collins…

    Finally, the Rookies of the Year was released today: Rangers Closer Neftali Feliz and San Fran’s catcher Buster Posey have won the hardware, mirroring their garnering of the Willie Mays Award given by the BBA.
