Winter Meetings update

Not too much to report that hasn't been reported. Spoke with Lilly's agent today who says there are more teams in the mix than just Chicago and Toronto and that they will NOT wait for Zito to sign to set the market. The lobby is crazy, with 100 journalists milling about waiting for news and surging anyone who walks through the lobby. The respect given to Peter Gammons is absolutely incredible. Lugo should sign with the Sox VERY soon and there doesn't seem to be a Manny deal. As for the Jays, same ole same ole with Lilly/Meche...if anything interesting happens, I'll let everyone know. Wish me luck, i have interviews tomorrow!
