MLB Winter Meetings 2012: The Detroit Tigers invade Nashville

Since there wasn't much going on yesterday that Al and Alli didn't cover, be sure to get your fix here.

Tigers remain in talks on Sanchez
Beck's Blog, Jason Beck
One little nugget we didn't mention about Sanchez yesterday: if his contract offers go north of 7 years and/or $100 million, the tigers are expected to drop out of the running. Rumor has it that Dave Dombrowski will also laugh at the GM that signs that deal every night before he goes to sleep.

Rangers, Joakim Soria agree on a 2 year, $8 million deal
Lone Star Ball, Adam J. Morris
This could end up being a steal for the Rangers, especially considering there is also a third year team option in this deal.

Four years, $40 million for Pagan. It would be easier to call this an overpay had they not just won the World Series.

Free-agent matchmaker: Michael Bourn

I'm a bit surprised that Bourn hasn't been signed yet, but I'm glad that no one has given in to his $100+ million demands quite yet either.
