Here's how the Blago team is shaping up

Attorneys in the Rod Blagojevich case met this morning to hash out a legal team strategy.
"We're in," Sam Adam Jr. just told me.
"My father and I are planning to file our appearances Monday or Tuesday."
Here's how the team is shaping up according to lawyers at the meeting this morning:
Sam Adam Jr. will be in the day-to-day control of the case along with his father, Sam Adam, and Shelly Sorosky, who has been on board with the governor since day one.
"They never left," Sorosky said of the Adams, who played a hand in the legal team when Blagojevich faced impeachment. "I think they will be on board, yes."
The Adams father-and-son team, best known for their work in the R. Kelly trial -- as well as Sorosky -- are expected to be the trial lawyers.
Allan Ackerman: The defense wants him to be the point-person on writing motions and sorting through documents. However, Judge James Zagel said he would only agree to appoint three lawyers to the case. He did leave the door open to appointing a fourth lawyer -- not for trial -- but to help work through the immense amount of evidence.
Sam Adam Jr. told me earlier this week he was "champing at the bit," to be Rod Blagojevich's lawyer.
