So far, this has got to be the dullest winter meetings I have ever covered. The biggest news of the first two days was that Tampa Bay traded the troubled Elijah Dukes to Washington (yawn). The rumor of the hour, at least where your hometown Dodgers are concerned, seems to be that they are coveting Baltimore’s Erik Bedard and that there is a possible deal in the works that would send Jonathan Broxton and Matt Kemp to the Orioles. I find that hard to believe, mostly that the Dodgers would part with Broxton at a time when they are about to enter the season with a 38-year-old closer, but I’m running it down anyway. Check with ya later.
