Lots of activity before the winter meetingscatcher free agents starting pitchers trades winter meetings

The big contracts for pitchers seem to be waiting for Tanaka. Ubaldo, E Santana, and Garza remain unsigned with little news about any of them. When the smoke clears, there should be some bargains to be picked up. I definitely think the Twins need to pick up another starter, a veteran catcher (Suzuki and Buck remain), and perhaps one offensive player. The winter meetings should be fun!

There's also the "this guy has been bugging me for a week about making this trade so eff it, Imma do it to get him away from me!" idea.
This is pretty unique from that respect this season. I really expect more trades (and not FA signings) in the Winter meetings. Easier to sing free agents over the phone, harder to do trades...
