8 a.m. ET: Edward Pola and George Wyle had it right back in 1963. For those not familiar with classic holiday music and/or the use of the Internet, those two are the writers of the Christmas music classic “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year.” They were talking about the holiday season, of course, but they could have just as easily been writing about baseball’s hot stove season. The stove has been heating up for a few weeks now, and she’ll get fired up big time this week when baseball’s winter meetings get going in Nashville, Tenn. Rumors and transactions will be the talk of the week, as baseball’s power brokers meet down in the Music City. Red Sox fans who are starving for something to happen surrounding their team — other than complementary signings of players like Jonny Gomes and David Ross — will be hoping to see the Sox make some big moves at the meetings. If they do, NESN.com will be all over it. We’ll have our eyes on everything throughout the week, live-blogging all of the action from morning to night, with updates all the way up until the meetings end Thursday. Be sure to check back early and often all week long to see which big names might be on the move and where they’ll be headed.
