Winter Meetings preview:

@Buster_ESPN: The Winter Meetings promise to be really busy this year, because so few of the primary Free Agents have come off the board like Robinson Cano, Mike Napoli and Shin-Soo Choo. And, there is an expectation among baseball general managers that we will get our first sense of what Tampa Bay could glean in its effort to trade David Price.

 

@Kurkjian_ESPN: If the week before the Winter Meetings is any indication, the Winter Meetings are going to be full of activity. Some big moves have already been made – Jacoby Ellsbury and Brian McCann to the Yankees and Prince Fielder traded for Ian Kinsler – but there is still a lot that will happen, most notably, the landing spot for the premier free agent, Robinson Cano. It’s going to be a wild week in Florida.

 

@JimBowdenESPNxm: This wild off-season of wheeling and dealing has just gotten started and I expect the Winter Meetings will be just as crazy as this week has been. Remember, 11 of the top 15 Free Agents of this year's class remain unsigned. Trade discussions continue to swirl and this could be one of the busiest off seasons in recent history.
