Getting Blanked was the place you wanted to be this morning at 11 AM ET, as we went live with our post-Winter Meetings Getting Blanked Hangout on Google+, Ben Nicholson-Smith of MLB Trade Rumors (@MLBTRBen) and Jonah Keri of Grantland (@JonahKeri), who, along with Drew Fairservice and yours truly, recapped all the big happenings from the Winter Meetings.

Here’s the replay:

The Rule Five draft is tomorrow, marking the end of the Winter Meetings for another year, and just as we did when previewing the event last week, we’re going to wrap it all up with another Google+ Hangout– i.e. a live video chat event from separate locales– this one via Getting Blanked, as we’ll be looking at all the moves that happened (or didn’t happen) around the Majors.

And we’ll be doing it tomorrow, Thursday, December 5th at 11 AM ET. 

Drew will once again moderate, and along with me, he’ll be joined by Ben Nicholson-Smith of MLB Trade Rumors (@MLBTRBen), and Jonah Keri of Grantland (@JonahKeri).

You’ll be able to watch our chat live on a YouTube stream that will be embedded at Getting Blanked– no Google+ account needed– and if there’s anything in particular you want us to talk about, fire some comments to the Getting Blanked facebook page or at Drew on twitter.

The one we did last week went swimmingly, I think, so join us, won’t you?

Here’s the place you wanted to be at 2 PM ET when we went live with our Winter Meetings #DJFHangout on Google+, featuring Gregor Chisholm of BlueJays.com (@GregorMLB), and Ben Nicholson-Smith of MLB Trade Rumors (@MLBTRBen), who, along with Drew Fairservice and yours truly, examined what the Jays will be getting up to at next week’s Winter Meetings, and through the rest of the off-season.

Here we have the replay of the event:

MLB’s annual Winter Meetings begin next week in Nashville, and even though the Jays appear to have done most of their off-season heavy lifting already, that doesn’t mean there aren’t a number or moves they could still make, or all kinds of intrigue to follow as the rest of the American League East tries to catch up.

And it also doesn’t mean that we’re not going to maintain our tradition of blanket coverage of the event, from a Jays perspective, around here, or… y’know… that we didn’t already have stuff long planned out in anticipation of Alex Anthopoulos doing a tonne of business in Nashville. Stuff like Google+ Hangout (i.e. a live video chat from separate locales) previewing the meetings that’s happening today, Thursday, November 29th at 2 PM ET.

Drew will moderate, and along with me, he’ll be joined by BlueJays.com beat reporter Gregor Chisholm (@GregorMLB), and Ben Nicholson-Smith of MLB Trade Rumors (@MLBTRBen).

You’ll be able to watch our chat live on a YouTube stream that will be embedded in the blog– no Google+ account needed– and if there is anything in particular you want us to talk about, why not post it over on the wall of the DJF Facebook page? Because… well, frankly, because we’ve been trying to grow our Facebook presence lately, and making sure all the posts on the blog get on there and into your news feed in a timely fashion, with all kinds of extra graphical goodies tossed in for good measure.

Alternatively– since it seems clear you’re not actually going to post stuff on the Facebook page (though you’ll get preferential treatment if you do!)– go ahead and hit us up using the Twitter hashtag #DJFHangout.

MLB’s annual Winter Meetings are less than a week away, and even though the Jays have done much of their off-season heavy lifting already, that doesn’t mean there aren’t a number or moves they could still make, or all kinds of intrigue as the rest of the American League East tries to catch up.

So… this is a thing. A real live promo thing. A real live promo thing thing that, as Scott explains at Getting Blanked, “is completely original and not borrowed in any way, shape, or form from a popular sitcom of the 1980s.”
