Highly recommend, it's class. Mets though, not Yankees.

Neither.  Think it'll be the Cubs at Wrigley field.

What are winter meetings?

It's a week long meeting between all of the GMs and other execs of most of the baseball teams and their minor league affiliates. They hang out and hash out off-season deals with agents. A lot of free agent contracts gets swooped up. It's also the main trade show for MLB as well.

I don't think a lot of blockbuster trades really happen during the Winter Meetings but it's definitely the symbolic kick-off for the next season.

I’m amazed baseball makes enough money to pay these salaries. I guess they do play a lot of games.

You know that feeling the entire world had when alex ferguson retired and they didn't just gradually get worse they swan-dove straight into s*** lake? :lol: Waiting for the yankees to fail is like that for me but times a billion. I don't even watch the sport to cheer on my own boyhood club anymore. I am an agent of fandom hate who lives to be petty and spiteful. :lol:

These lols are putting in a shift. :lol:


edit: in fairness the above applies double to the mets but they're basically everyone's Sunderland at this point and it's beginning to feel like kicking a slow puppy.
