Winter Meetings

The Winter Meetings started today.... Nothing big has happened yet.... It seems the Mets and Rangers are the Contenders for both Zito and now Vicente Padilla.... Also, their has been some talk about getting Jason Jennings from the Rockies for Bannister and Milledge or another pair.... I believe that would be a stupid trade for these reasons:
1)Only 1 more year left on his contract
2)He isnt that great of a pitcher, In 32 starts for Colorado last season, the 28–year-old Jennings posted a 3.78 ERA while holding opposing batters to a .258 average. His ERA ended above 5.00 in each of the previous seasons.
Though, He did allow three runs or less, while lasting at least six innings, in 56 percent of his starts.
3)Milledge and Bannister have great potential even though Bannister had that hamstring injury and Milledge has yet to live up to the Hype (I think he will)
