The MLB Winter Meetings technically got underway on Sunday afternoon, but the action did not heat up until Monday morning. General manager and executives from all 30 MLB teams have congregated in Las Vegas — I’m not sure if that idea was brilliant or terrible — and are busy discussing deals and negotiating with free agents. Some are even looking to improve their teams for the upcoming season.

Others, like our beloved Detroit Tigers, will probably just be sitting on the sidelines. There is the Rule 5 draft to look forward to, of course, but we don’t expect Al Avila and company to make much of a splash this week.

That doesn’t mean we aren’t interested in everything else happening around baseball. Use this thread to discuss the rumors and happenings around baseball this week — or anything else you want, really.
