LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) Arizona general manager Kevin Towers had been talking trade with Chicago White Sox GM Rick Hahn for a month when he arrived at the winter meetings last weekend and sent a text to Angels counterpart Jerry Dipoto.
"Can I get your attention in that Trumbo deal for Skaggs and Eaton?" he remembered writing.
"Sure, why don't you come down and talk?" Dipoto quickly replied, according to Towers.
