Nothing From Nashville

Last year, on the first day of the 2006 Winter Meetings in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, the Cubs denied they had completed a deal with free agent pitcher Ted Lilly and announced that scouting director Tim Wilken had been named East Coast Scout of the Year.

Today, the first day of the 2007 Winter Meetings in Nashville, may have been a little less action-packed.

While various rumor factories linked the Cubs to a number of other teams' players--including Raul Ibanez, Brian Roberts, Josh Hamilton and of course, the Japanese stars Kuroda and Fukudome--and linked a number of Cubs players--including Ryan Dempster, Mark Prior, Scott Eyre, Will Ohman, and Matt Murton--to other teams, no Cub deals were actually consummated on Monday.

This Winter Meetings stuff is fun...right up to the moment I get a headache from trying to keep up with all of trades that sportswriters make up.
