Fact or Fiction on All of MLB's Hottest Free-Agency, Trade Rumors
Carlos Osorio/Associated Press

The idea of any notable free-agent moves happening on February 20 used to be met with laughter, but in today's era of Major League Baseball, with teams trusting young players more and not wanting to overpay middle-of-the-road talent, it's become commonplace. 

So many players who can play a huge role on a playoff team, or even a championship team, are still available that there are bargains to be found all over the place. 

Ubaldo Jimenez, arguably the best free-agent starter with MLB experience, just agreed to a four-year pact with the Baltimore Orioles, according to Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com

This has been one of the most unpredictable offseasons in recent memory. Robinson Cano found big money in Seattle. The New York Yankees went on one of their patented spending sprees to catch up with Boston. Relievers got overpaid and overlooked. Quality starters found there wasn't a lot of money out there for them, or are still looking for work. 

With so many things still left to be decided, we want to play a game of Fact or Fiction with the hottest rumors around the web.
