It’s technically the Winter Meetings in Nashville, and I have no idea how often I’ll be doing these day-long recaps (probably not often), but I want to write right now, so write I will. Here’s what’s going around the mill tonight:
- Geovany Soto has signed a one-year deal with the Texas Rangers. Right now he would be their starting catcher.
- James Loney is close to a deal with the Tampa Bay Rays. You may remember he was a part of the massive deal that sent him from the Dodgers to the Red Sox. He should be the Rays starting 1B unless a deal that gets done with someone like the Nationals in a James Shields for Michael Morse and Danny Espinosa exchange, as Jim Bowden suggests.
If more stuff happens tonight before I go to bed then I’ll update it. Otherwise… we wait until they go back at it tomorrow at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel and Resort which seems like a huge place from all the photos and maps I’m seeing on Twitter and MLB Network.
