Tampa Bay Rays News and Links: Steven Strasburg reportedly signs record deal with Washington Nationals

The baseball world gathered in San Diego for the first day of the Winter Meetings.

These meetings have an actual agenda; yesterday’s schedule began with a “fun run,” and we would love to be flies on the wall when the assorted GMs gather for “Baseball Winter Meetings Yoga” on Wednesday. For fans, however, the Winter Meetings are eagerly awaited because offseason trades and free agent signings so often result from the informal meetings that occur outside the formal program.

The Rule 5 draft will occur at the end of the four day session, on Thursday.
