The madness is upon us with the 2013 Major League Baseball winter meetings getting underway in Orlando. 

You could argue that the madness started last week with the flurry of signings, but now we get into the teeth of the MLB offseason, when various executives, players and agents are under the same roof to talk about all their wants and needs. 

A lot of things are going to be talked about this week—some of them will bear fruit and change the landscape of MLB in 2014, others will be a lot of hot air from agents trying to drive up prices or teams trying to pressure a player into taking their deal. 

Regardless of what does or doesn't happen, we are here to talk about it in real time with this live blog. It will be updated throughout the day with news, rumors and some opinions about what's going on. 

New information will appear at the top of the page, but feel free to go through and look for anything you might have missed or want to discuss.
