Straight From the Buffet Tables...Err...The Winter Meetings

Phil Rogers from the Chicago Tribune is reporting that the Brewers have added a 6th year to their offer for Sabathia.

Of course, he's also reporting the following, which might eat away at his credibility as a reporter:

On the eve of the meetings, the Yankees' staff dined with Sabathia and his agent, Scott Boras, at a Vegas restaurant. The meeting reportedly went well, with Sabathia apparently allaying fears that he was only using the Yankees to drive up his market.

This all sounds fine, except that Greg Genske, and not Scott Boras, is Sabathia's agent. If Boras went to dinner with Sabathia and the Yankees, that would probably breach some sort of rule of sports agent etiquette (insert joke here).

Phil Rogers also reported that this is the year Santo would make it.

Phil Rogers also reported last year that the Cubs were letting Kerry Wood go. Hours later, the Cubs signed Kerry Wood.

In short, Phil Rogers is an idiot.
