Tweeting from the meetings
Indeed, if you’re not already following the club on twitter, that might be the quickest way to get news because it’s so easy to post. Ken Gurnick has his usual great coverage on dodgers.com, but obviously he has to take the time to write it, whereas we’re posting stuff as it comes out of Ned’s mouth. Last night, he talked about George Sherrill, Juan Pierre, Joe Torre, Josh Lindblom, Scott Elbert, James McDonald and Brad Ausmus, so be sure to follow the team on twitter.
Mark Timmons from LADodgertalk.com is fortunate in that the Winter Meetings invaded his hometown, so he’s been writing about the experience.
Otherwise, not a heck of a lot to report. We spent the morning in PR meetings which we do each year, and go over various issues that come up during the season. Last night, Chris Haydock in player development and myself talked to about 100 students from our alma mater, Indiana University, and we brought in Tommy to wow them with stories at the end. It was a pretty cool event for those who came.
Tonight, we’ll have a dinner/meeting with all our minor league partners, as this is the best time to get everyone in the same place.
Hope to most more tonight when Ned speaks to the media again…
