On the ground at Opryland

After a 4 1/2 hour drive and countless steps to get my bearings at this massive Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville, I bring you my first of likely several dispatches from the 2012 Winter Meetings.

This is the second time I’ve been here for a Winter Meetings and like 2007, you need to leave a trail of breadcrumbs to find your way to go to and from. Hopefully I don’t get lost here forever — I need to get home in time for Redsfest on Friday.

Click here for a quick primer about the week ahead and be sure to check back here and on Reds.com and MLB.com for up-to-date Reds news from the Winter Meetings.


Hopefully it is a productive Winter Meetings for the Reds.

Mark, all info from Walt is we will be looking for a lead off hitter as our No. 1 priority. Really can’t understand it being our No.1 priority. Middle of the order LF bat is the key issue this off season in my mind especially with Broxton in the fold. When we struggled last year 4-8 BP had to move to the clean up spot. This is when the team took off. In 2010 we ran away with the divison with Gomes hitting about what Ludwick gave us this year. I don’t care who leads off if some one isn’t producing behind Joey it won’t mnatter. The fact that he doesn’t mention that as a primary ned may be indicating he is not concerned that Ludwick won’t be back. Your thoughts.
