Wade doesn't really feel like he needs to meet with LaHawk

JJO's accompanying article in the Chronicle about half an hour ago explains Wade's plans on negotiating with Hawkins:

In other early news, Wade made it clear that he doesn't feel a need to actually visit with LaTroy Hawkins here because the veteran righthander already knows how highly he's thought of by Wade and the Astros.

Wade then gave extensive praise to Hawkins, who is in town visiting with teams hoping to sign him.

That's so strange...

Don't read to much into JdJO's pot-stirring. He doesn't provide a quote from Wade, and he doesn't say that Hawkins has asked to meet personally either. It's a throwaway line that Ortiz added in case Hawkins signs elsewhere--then he's got himself a story: "Hawkins felt disrespected and unwanted, so he signed with Team X instead." He did the same thing with the Valverde story. It was BS then and it's BS now.
