Yesterday Alderson addressed the media for his pre-Winter meetings agenda speech and as usual said a bunch of nothing, leaving that to be interpreted many different ways by other blogs.  Here I will just give you think link to MLBTR which does a great job of summarizing the points and provides links to Twitter feeds of the beat guys.

I still think it bothers many that Alderson is in fact so non-committal in the press.  Personally, I don't care what he says to reporters, only what he does in the end.  If we went by likely on what he has said, I think it's pretty clear that Granderson wouldn't be here.  Thus, I will just sit back and watch the off-season unfold and hope for more improvements to be made.
