Now that spring training has begun and the offseason is essentially over, new players acquired through trades or free agency can get used to their new surroundings. More importantly, the teams can get used to their new players.
While it's too early to think of trades that can happen at the deadline, it's not too early to notice areas that could be cause for concern. There are teams that look like they may need a big arm or heavy hitter in July to stay in the playoff hunt already, even though it's only March.
All of these teams, as well as any that may not be in the playoff hunt, will have certain trade goals during the 2012 season.
