With the 2012 Major League Baseball Winter Meetings set to take place next week in Nashville, we should see some pretty good movement by teams interested in signing coveted free agents or from teams looking to trade their way into contention.
While most of the buzz this week has centered on where Josh Hamilton and Zach Greinke are going to land, there could be some fairly big names that do indeed get traded in Nashville as well.
Of course by the end of these meetings, there will be a number of deals made that we did not see coming, but there are a few players being shopped around or asked about before the main event that are worth a look.
Whether they are realistic targets or not is another story, but if there is enough interest or cash in the offer, no player is untouchable.
Here are some of the bigger names being discussed as well as a look at whether they are realistic trade fodder or just big wishes from talk radio’s legion of fans.
