1. GM Meetings. The eyes of the baseball world are on South Florida, with baseball front offices assembled and trade talk in the air. Brownie Points has quotes from Scott Boras about his client, Xander Bogaerts, and a possible early long-term deal with the Red Sox. Sports Hate Me put together a list of possible trade targets for the Nationals this offseason, while Bullpen, Baseball & Sock Talk looks at some potential free agent signings that could help the A’s. THE REAL CUBS FAN is allowing himself to dream this offseason with some recommended moves for the Cubs, and Cardinal Red Baseball discusses the Redbirds’ reported interest in free agent ace David Price.

Meanwhile, halfgameback wants to help Reds fans cope with losing some of their favorite players this offseason as new Reds GM Dick Williams has said he is willing to listen to offers on all current players.

MLB.com Pirates beat writer Tom Singer wasn’t nearly as thrilled with BBWAA voters’ finalists for the NL MVP Award, taking to his Change for a Nickel blog to express his dismay over Andrew McCutchen not making the cut. Have your say by voting in the Esurance MLB Awards over at MLB.com/awards!
