The MLB Hot Stove is nearing its boiling point, and the offseason is really only just beginning. The tone has been set with ace pitcher Zack Greinke signing a long-term deal with the Los Angeles Dodgers, and more will follow. Multiple teams are looking to make deals, and free-agency grand prize Josh Hamilton has yet to sign a new contract.
One key rumor involves New York Mets right-hander and reigning NL Cy Young Award winning R.A. Dickey (pictured). The team picked up his option for next season, but could look to deal him if he won't sign an extension soon.
Needless to say, rumors are a-swirling and not going away anytime soon. Over the past couple of weeks, some have seemed like they have been around for a while.
As fans, we will all be happy once they are no longer the talk of the town and we can look forward to the new season.
