Rangers & Josh Hamilton are making progress in working towards a contract. That would be shocking to say the least...

The Red Sox have signed Shane Victorino to a 3 year/39 million dollar contract.

In my opinion they overpaid.

Also, the Giants have re-signed Angel Pagan to a 4 year/40 million dollar contract.

I wonder what the Philly's are going to do now. They were rumored to be going hard after Pagan. Now that Victorino, Upton, Pagan are off the market are they going to go hard after Bourn?

lol at Victorino's contract. He's a good player, but he's not THAT good. Plus, in his walk year, he didn't exactly set the world on fire.

All the leadoff types/centerfielders are flying off the market. Looks like the Reds are stuck with Drew Stubbs.

The Victorino contract is bad considering you will be paying a 32 year old player that relied on his, now declining, speed for a lot of his value.

Jonathan Broxton to Cincy and Brandon League to LA have to be the worst deals so far. At least LA seemingly has bottomless pockets so they can afford a mistake. I don't know what the hell Cincy was thinking giving a reliever a 3-year deal.

He probably doesn't want to play 3B since it lowers his value. Oh and the team is going to blow too. Then again, his future is likely at 3B anyways so he probably should get used to it. The guy has a great arm but his range isn't getting any better.

I think he's either going to sign with the Rangers or the Mariners. A while back I said I thought he'd sign with the Mariners. I wouldn't be surprised if they ponied up for him.

Looks like Tampa is getting Yunel Escobar. That sucks. He's going to be a steal for them at his price for the next 2 years.

The Giants have signed Marco Scutaro to a 3 year/20 million dollar contract

The Marlins have traded Yunel Escobar to the Rays for Derek Dietrich

The Astros have traded RP Wilton Lopez to the Rockies for SP Alex White and Alex Gillingham

I love the winter meetings.

I was liking what the Angels were doing so far. Getting Hanson, signing Madson & Burnett. I don't like the Blanton deal, mostly because I don't like Blanton, but in that big park, I think he'll do alright. But so far, Angels making good deals...
