The hot stove is sure to get hotter in the coming days, but before any real talks began, baseball GM's hit the lanes:
Before knocking down trade rumors, baseball general managers toppled some bowling pins.
GMs began their annual meetings Monday with an afternoon at the lanes, putting on colored shirts for some kegling.
''I bowled a 122,'' Philadelphia's Pat Gillick said. ''Probably in the upper third, I would think.''
The Phillies can't even win at bowling. The article also mentions that the Phillies "need offense." Do you really think the Phillies need offense? Sure it'd be nice. I'd say we need pitching more.
