Welcome one, and welcome all, to the 2012 MLB Winter Meetings in luxurious...Nashville? Yeah, Nashville. Anyway, the Winter Meetings every year are where all of the GMs around baseball meet and talk shop, and plenty of contracts and trades get done around this time of year. Last year, Albert Pujols and CJ Wilson signed with the Angels within something like a half hour of each other. So yeah, things are going to be happening this week, and we'll obviously be on the ball with all of the events of the Winter Meetings.
But over the weekend, we actually had some moves already fall into place. Mariano Rivera will be back with the Yankees in 2013. The Braves and Angels swapped Tommy Hanson and Jordan Walden. The nontender deadline has came and gone, and many recognizable names are on the list...we'll have more on that today. Finally, we saw the Kyuji Fujikawa derby come to an end, with the Cubs emerging as surprise winners over the Angels.
Enjoy the offseason, everyone.
