This year the winter meetings are being held in Nashville, Tennessee at the Gaylord Osprey Hotel and Convention Center. In the past, the meetings have lacked the fanfare that has more recently become commonplace, but due to the high profile free agents, infinite number of possible trades, and most importantly the MILLIONS, and I capitalize that word for a reason, of dollars thrown around, Baseball's Winter Meetings have become the event of the offseason.
So, let's recap a bit of the action we have already witnessed on just the opening day of the meetings.
My grade: B+ (could become an A if the team can move Saltalamacchia for a decent prospect)
My Grade: A- (good for player, good for team, only randomness can screw with this one)
My Grade: B (could be great, could be awful, not a lot to lose for the Rangers either way)
