Diamondbacks and the Winter Meetings: Day 3 Round-up

New, comments

Not often we get about 400 comments on a story, on an off-season day without an actual hard news to report. Wade Miley: still a Diamondback

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

As we noticed in the introduction to our open thread, there had already been rumors that Miley would be on the move, and the hot stove appeared to go into overdrive a little while later. Here's how things unfolded subsequently through Twitter:

But who? And what for? Sounds like he's going to Boston!

Ooh! Sounds like he's REALLY going to Boston!

Hang on... Not so fast...

Oh, wait...

No, really...

I'm so confused...

[Throws computer out window, buries head in bucket]

So, Wade Miley is still here, and that was my afternoon entirely wasted. How was yours?

And, elsewhere...

Our chief weapon is confusion. Confusion and discord. Discord and confusion. Our two chief weapons are confusion and discord... And a slick ability for misinformation. Our three weapons are confusion, discord and a slick ability for misinformation... and an almost fanatical devotion to Ken Kendrick.... Our four...no... amongst our weapons.... amongst our weaponry...are such elements as confusion, discord....

I'll come in again.

Tomorrow is the Rule 5 draft, getting under way at 10am Arizona time. The Diamondbacks will have the first pick, and we've got a primer post on that scheduled for the morning, taking a look at who we might choose and what it means.
