Around the NL Central: December 9 Edition

It's been a busy week at the Winter Meetings. Here's a look at what the clubs in the NL Central accomplished -- and failed to accomplish -- in Dallas:

CHICAGO

CINCINNATI

  • The Reds didn't get anything done at the Winter Meetings, and that's got GM Walt Jocketty spittin' mad (sort of): Jocketty says he's been busting his tail to fill the team's holes (especially in the starting rotation), but thus far, all his hard work hasn't produced any results.
  • Before Rockies closer Huston Street was dealt to the Padres, there were rumblings that Colorado and Cincinnati might work a trade based around Street and erstwhile Reds ace Edinson Volquez, who was banished to the minors a couple of times last season. That trade didn't materialize, but word is the Rockies still might try to land Volquez.
  • Meanwhile, the Reds' top priority of the offseason remains signing All-Star second baseman Brandon Phillips to a contract extension. Jocketty apparently extended an offer to Phillips' people this morning, but from the sounds of it, Jocketty doesn't expect that offer to get the deal done.
