This is beginning to look less like “meetings”, than a four-day executive holiday...

Lewis v Rahman X

Another day, another lack of anything significant to discuss on the Diamondbacks front. The main fragment of interest was a rumor - later denied - that the team were interested in Red Sox outfielder, Jackie Bradley Jr. Whether true or not, it does appear to be the case that Boston appear to be in a selling mood - unusual for the reigning World Series champions. But it was reported they were open to offers on a number of players, including Xander Bogaerts and Rick Porcello, as well as Bradley. Of course, that could well mean a number of things, but I would presume this is mostly in order for the Red Sox to free up resources - perhaps to pursue one of the marquee free-agents?

Otherwise, the Dodgers are actively shopping Yasiel Puig. Fingers crossed he ends up with Team Shot Out of a Cannon. Anyway, talk among yourselves, while we wait to see if the D-backs are going to do much of anything at all.
