And...the so-called "winter meetings" of Major League Baseball will take place again here in America's Finest City, just over a couple of months away. The last time San Diego was the host city was 2014.

When was this year's meeting site announced? I don't remember hearing it and was talking to some baseball people over the weekend who commented about it as a matter of common knowledge. I'm usually up on these things, so it surprised me when this was mentioned.

I had been hearing about this from time to time on game broadcasts but I am not sure when it was first announced. I will be happy to see this back in town, though. I hope the hometown team does something to make a splash! That is I hope they do something right, Lol. Last time the meetings were here I think A.J. Preller tried too hard and that ended up backfiring on him.

Meeting FAQ--first full day is underway now.

Interesting article from the Union-Tribune--women in baseball fight for "front page".

So Cathy, you're going downtown for the Rule 5 draft tomorrow?

Tonight was the big gala at Petco Park. It would have been nice to have a connection for that one.

The U-T had some really good coverage of a lot of angles of the winter meetings.

I was there for the Rule 5, and we were also there on Wednesday.
