Lots of waiting…
It’s Monday evening at the Opryland Hotel in Nashville — correction — just outside of the Nashville. And speaking of outside, I’ve only ventured outdoors for five minutes in the last 29 hours since I’ve arrived.
The big news of the day is Aroldis Chapman. There was lots of smoke that he was headed to the Dodgers in a trade. Then I learned Monday afternoon that no deal was done yet, and that other teams might be in the mix to land the All-Star closer.
Since then, it’s been hurry up and wait. Bryan Price held his one media session of the week on Monday but did not want to wade into the speculation. Walt Jocketty postponed his daily briefing with the beat writers, originally scheduled for 6 p.m. ET.
Now it’s just hang time, while trying to keep snooping around for news.
