The Winter Meetings are just around the corner, as they’ll kick off Sunday evening in San Diego and run through next Thursday. This is perhaps the busiest time of the year for those interested in player movement (and if you’re an MLBTR reader, you almost certainly fall under that umbrella!), as rumors will be flying fast and furious with decision-makers from all 30 clubs and reporters from all corners in the same place at the same time. (For a look at the types of transactions and rumors to expect, check out the Day In Review posts from the past few years.)
MLBTR will again be providing 24-hour, around-the-clock coverage of the Winter Meetings as we have in years past. Additionally, Steve Adams and Tim Dierkes will be in San Diego to provide live updates and coverage from the event. And while it’s impossible to predict exactly what will take place next week, Steve and MLBTR’s Jeff Todd took some time today to preview some major storylines and look at various team needs from around the league in a special bonus edition of the MLBTR Podcast.
