With the Thanksgiving holiday behind us, it’s time to heat up the baseball hot stove. The Winter Meetings begin on December 8 in sunny San Diego. Baseball officials, front office personnel, and player agents will gather for a week of seminars and sit-downs. Though the off-season is off to a slow start, conversations begun at the GM Meetings in November will surely begin to bear fruit as proximity provides opportunity and urgency. MLB wants more activity at the Winter Meetings. Will the Cardinals oblige?
Cardinals officials and in-the-know reporters continue to maintain that the club plans to be active.
