Winter Meetings Start, Sort Of

There was the tiniest bit of action Sunday night, and it's still early hours in Vegas, but here are a few tidbits to tide you over until something actually happens at the Bellagio.

The Rangers sent C Gerald Laird to the Tigers for two pitching prospects on the eve of the winter meetings.

The first rumor of the meetings turned out to be just that, as both the Reds and White Sox deny there's a Homer Bailey for Jermaine Dye deal afoot.

Omar Minaya has set his sights on Francisco Rodriguez, says the NY Times' Ben Shpigel.

The Free Press says the Tigers have watched free agent shortstop Adam Everett work out. They need to replace Edgar Renteria.

The Tampa Tribune says the Rays will finally get some respect at the winter meetings.

The Chicago Sun-Times says the Cubs and Padres probably won't complete a deal for Peavy in Vegas -- but that doesn't mean it won't happen. The Cardinals are no longer interested.

Is anyone twittering/twitting from the Winter Meetings?

For some reason, this post did not show up when I clicked on Insider. I had to post to the previous entry for this to show.

Tigers would have been one potential landing spot for Varitek. The theory was that with their offense, they could afford his bat even if it does not bounce back. I guess this still leaves Houston, Florida, Boston, SD, maybe NYY, and NYM or SF if they look to upgrade or get younger as potentially looking for catching help, with TX having one more to trade, probably AZ as well, and SF if they move their Molina.
