Elvis and Ann Margaret won't be there, but everybody from the world of baseball will. It's the annual social event of the off-season, as the 'Who's Who' of America's Pastime assemble for the 2018 Winter Meetings at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas Dec 9-13.
In the Pacific Northwest, this glitzy conclave could better be described as The Jerry Dipoto Yard Sale, a last chance to clear out what remains of the Seattle Mariners once competitive roster.
Yes, Elvis has already left the building, and prized Seattle OF Mitch Haniger may not be far behind. In the circus of cellphone activity that will surely permeate the preceedings, the toughest decision may be whether to keep your phone constantly ON or OFF. GOOD or BAD news is on the doorstep!!!!
