Welcome to the Winter Meetings

indianapolis.jpgI’m in lovely Indianapolis for Day 1 of baseball’s Winter Meetings. Indy looks like that picture on the right — just with more clouds, no sun and about layer of snow right now.

Keep checking back here on the blog, on bluejays.com and on my Twitter feed (@MLBastian) to get the latest news and rumors for the Blue Jays.

Obviously, the big story surrounding Toronto is the future of ace pitcher Roy Halladay. The Jays will continue to listen to trade offers, with the Yankees and Red Sox, among others, in the mix to land Doc this winter.

Beyond Halladay’s situation, the Blue Jays are looking for a starting catcher, some outfield help and maybe some additional arms. Today is the deadline for free agents who have been offered arbitration to accept or decline. For Toronto, that now only applies to catcher Rod Barajas, and it seems highly unlikely that he’ll accept.

I’ll keep you posted on any developments with the Jays. Stay tuned for more…
