The GM meetings start today in Palm Springs California, but the morning papers are almost completely without any baseball stories. (Shrug.) Ah, welcome to the winter. It’s too early still for trades and signings and the 2005 awards are just starting to trickle in (Steve Lombardi and David Pinto do have their paws on the latest Bill James Handbook though, and are finding it to be tons’o'fun.) One item of note around these parts is that today marks the start of Bronx Banter’s fourth year. My first post appeared on November 7, 2002. The subject: Bill James joining the Red Sox.
