Given how awesome the Trade Deadline Blogathon was, I'm wondering what it will take to get Brett to blog the winter meetings non-stop. A free puppy? Two free puppies? A small cup of coffee from Chick-fil-a?

Ha. You know, I actually have thought about doing just that. The problem is, the Winter Meetings are multiple days long, and sometimes very little happens at the meetings, themselves (though there are always a ton of rumors).

But, as I said. I've thought about it. It turns out, as hard as the first one was, I had a blast doing it.

So.....a large cup of coffee?

Actually, if you're really interested in doing another 24 hour thing, the 24 leading up to the first pitch on Opening Day could be a lot of fun.

It doesn't have to be a 24 hour blog-a-thon, but it's looking like the winter meetings are going to be very interesting for Cubs fans this year. Like you said though, it's a good possibility that we would get another ghosting from the Cubs, so it's probably not a good idea.

Nope, has to be non-stop. 120 hours. Around hour 80 I plan on having Brett agree to give one of his kidneys to me. Don't ask why, I have my reasons.

I do think something should be done for the Winter Meetings and opening day, but the blogathon is perfect for the trade deadline. Anyone have some other ideas?

Well, if nothing else, I can assure that there will be TONS of posts during the Winter Meetings; and I suspect this place will be hopping. Hopefully, anyway.

Perhaps we could have a virtual snowball fight with the Cardinal fans.

We could find a Card's blog site and spam it like crazy with fake news of Pujols signing with the Cubs. Or we could just post a bunch of nonsense mixed with crazy baseball knowledge like we always do.

For the love of God, no. The retribution would be brutal - them dudes know how to fight dirty.
