Loose Ends, Day 1

Is it the economy? The show girls? The 24-hour buffets? Whatever the reason, the first day of baseball's winter meetings was ... eh. Dave Sheinin and Cameron Smith gave us the highlights; here are a few tidbits I found among the empty coin wrappers on the floor.

With Francisco Rodriguez seemingly all but locked up by the Mets, Kerry Wood moves up a rung on the reliever ladder. The
Indians are interested, as are my the Detroit Tigers, who are also interested in J.J. Putz.

CC Sabathia says he wants to be a Dodger. Negotiating ploy to annoy the Yankees, or ardent heart's desire? Meanwhile, the Brewers at least THINK they're still in the hunt.

Atlanta Journal-Constitution's David O'Brien has a Q and A with the retiring Greg Maddux.

Paul Hagen of the Philly Daily News says the Phils are interested in Delmon Young, younger (smaller) brother of the Nats' Dmitri.

Stop me if you're heard this -- the economic news isn't good. The Mets and Yankees have asked for more bond money for their respective stadiums, and mlb.com has laid off approximately 20 employees.

Given the recent history of the auto manufacturers, I'd say Detroit already has its shares of Putzes. He's from there.
