8 a.m. ET: There wasn’t much movement in the first day of the MLB Winter Meetings, but there was plenty of action and talking between teams. Fortunately for Red Sox fans, Boston was part of the biggest move of the day as Mike Napoli was reportedly signed to a three-year, $39 million contract on Monday. Angel Pagan was also reportedly re-signed by the Giants to a four-year, $40 million contract. Besides those two signings, there was some major trade talk with some intriguing players being shopped. The Mets are actively dangling knuckleballer R.A. Dickey to MLB teams, with the Red Sox, Blue Jays and Dodgers all being potential suitors for the 2012 NL Cy Young’s talents. The Marlins are shopping shortstop Yunel Escobar, who could be a future Ray or Athletic. Ricky Nolasco isn’t happy in Miami after he saw most of his teammates traded away to the Blue Jays, and if he gets his way, he could be gone soon as well. There’s sure to be plenty more action throughout the week down in Nashville, so keep your eyes peeled to NESN.com’s MLB Winter Meetings live blog through Thursday afternoon. We’ll be updating all day with the biggest news and rumors as they come through.
