What we learned from day one:
- The Rays might have a crush on Milton Bradley, take him to lunch. Ken Rosenthal says the Rays are the favorites to sign him, meanwhile the Rays don't seem to think they'll sign anyone during the meetings.
- The Rays have meet and greets planned with a few other free agents.
- Ken Griffey Jr. "would be thrilled" to play with Tampa Bay. Rays reaction:
- Rocco Baldelli is apparently going to Boston.
- The Rays signed Paul Phillips: looks like minor league filler.
- Orvella removed from the 40 man roster.
