Joe Maddon met with the media at the Winter Meetings today. You can listen to the session below but here are the highlights:
- If David Price is not traded this winter, it is “less likely” that he would be traded during the season.
- When asked again about possibly trading Price: “Honestly, listen, I have been in an RV for a month.”
- On being able to ignore baseball in the offseason: “I’m not the guy that sits around writing lineups all winter long because we change it every night anyway.”
- Maddon said he would like to have James Loney back but understands that this is Loney’s shot to get the biggest contract of his career.
- Not surprisingly, he is not ready to name the ninth inning pitcher noting that several guys are capable.
