The commissioner's office is intent on getting some business expedited this week -- GMs were prohibited from bringing their assistants, and the days are dedicated to league business with team business left for the hallways and dinner tables.

Here are a few of the rumor bits currently floating around:

* Leo Mazzone, who turned down the Yankees' pitching coach job previously, will not be interviewed this time around. (Journal News )

* The Cardinals want to get a contract extension done with Albert Pujols "between now and the Christmas holiday." (St. Louis Post-Dispatch )

* The humidor at Coors Field will be addressed during the meetings. (Denver Post )

* Andrew Miller assumes he'll be a reliever in Boston. (

* The Mets' lack of discipline last year makes Terry Collins a good candidate for the Mets, though Bob Melvin made a strong impression on GM Sandy Alderson. (New York Post )

* Rockies free agent left-hander Jorge De La Rosa is the Pirates' top target. (Pittsburgh Tribune-Review )

* There are 12 teams "interested" in third baseman Adrian Beltre. (
