Here is a thread to discuss all of the transactions that occur at the Winter Meetings, which are in sunny San Diego from December 7-11. Many GMs are looking to upgraded their teams still through free agency or trade, although the transactions that have occurred already this offseason suggest it may be a quieter winter meetings than usual.

There are several big name free agents who have yet to sign a contract, led most notably by Jon Lester who appears to be close to deciding. The leading contenders are reportedly the Red Sox, Cubs, Giants and Dodgers, with Lester seeking a seven year deal. With Andrew Miller having signed, David Robertson appears to be not too far behind and is the remaining elite reliever left unsigned.
