Typically at the winter meetings, team executives spend the majority of their time operating out of their suites, meeting face-to-face with agents and general managers and working the phones.

The lobby is where scouts and junior members of the front office mingle to exchange information and conduct lower-level business.

One of the agendas the Dodgers are pushing aggressively in the lobby is to find a trade partner to take utility infielder Juan Uribe. Needless to say, the Dodgers are garnering little interest unless they're willing to pay his entire contract. Uribe, who has batted .199 the past two seasons combined, is entering the final year of a three-year, $21 million contract.
