As the MLB Winter Meetings progress, the offseason has already kicked off with a bang. The Miami Marlins, in typical fashion, have dumped their payroll and sent Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle, Josh Johnson and two other players to the Toronto Blue Jays for Yunel Escobar, Henderson Alvarez and others.
On top of this blockbuster, there are a few other trade rumors that have been circling which, though crazy, could hold some water.
Take New York Mets pitcher RA Dickey. The man has just won the NL Cy Young, but the team could look to deal him if no long-term agreement can be reached. This way, they don't lose him for nothing in free agency.
Of course, with some of the other names being thrown around, we could be in for one hell of a winter.
