Podcast: Pujols, trades, closers, more

It’s another day in chilly Dallas for Keith Law, but he braved the elements for the Baseball Today podcast as he and I discussed the latest rumors and happenings from the winter meetings, including:

1. OK, Mr. Pujols, you’ve apparently got your crazy offers, so make a decision. We explain how recent developments could signal a quick ending to this situation.

2. Meanwhile, on the other side of the Miami Marlins infield from Albert Pujols is former shortstop Hanley Ramirez. Is he happy? Is he sad? Does it matter? We try to think like Hanley.

3. Meet the new Mets, making all kinds of deals and rejuvenating their bullpen. Well, perhaps not rejuvenating, but at least they added pieces. We analyze the Mets-Giants trade.

4. And there’s more involving closers on the move, as the Padres get a guy they didn’t need, the White Sox move a guy they didn’t seem to need to move, and where will Ryan Madson and other free agent save fellows go?

5. Finally, Keith talks about what the GMs are actually doing in Dallas, where he likes and doesn’t like the meetings to be held, and congratulates a friend on making it into the Hall of Fame!

So tune in to Wednesday’s Baseball Today podcast and be entertained and informed! We’ll be back on Thursday to wrap the winter meetings!
