I've actually found this site to be more reliable for winter meeting updates

nbcsports.com did a total overhaul on their website

There is some very interesting stuff, and also some very amusing stuff, on this page Fenway... thanks for the link.

The Marlins are considering taking a pitcher out of their rotation, most likely Ricky Nolasco, and using him as a closer. Nolasco was looked at by many as a long-term reliever when he was a prospect with the Cubs. He would be the best choice to make the switch, as he has less upside than anyone else in Florida's rotation. If Nolasco goes to the pen, Sergio Mitre would be among the favorites to take his rotation spot. (Dec. 06, - 1:30 PM EST - Source: South Florida Sun-Sentinel)

:o: Wasn't Petit rumored to take the closer's role this season? Interesting way to fill their opening.

Dodgers manager Grady Little is considering batting Rafael Furcal third after Juan Pierre and Russell Martin. That would presumably drop Nomar Garciaparra to fifth, as Jeff Kent is likely locked into the cleanup spot. The Dodgers' best lineup would have Pierre hitting seventh or eighth, but there's no chance of that happening anytime soon.

:roflmao: I'm glad someone said it!

This one is a bit more detailed, some interesting stuff...

Royals looking at Meche
Penny on the market?
Cost to resign Carlos Zambrano for Cubs?
White Sox apparently passed on Lieberthal for $1 million plus as back-up

LA still looking at Mark Mulder and Suppan (might pass White Sox pitching depth)

Ol' No. 2

http://www.nbcsports.com/mlb_playernews/index.htmlI don't know about accuracy, but lots of comic relief on this site:

Rafael Soriano, R - Mariners (http://www.nbcsports.com/mlb_players/343816/detail.html)
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's David O'Brien says the Rafael Soriano-for-Horacio Ramirez deal between the Mariners and Braves is a done deal. Unbelievable. Maybe it's really Soriano to Atlanta for Ramirez and the compromising pictures John Schuerholz has of Mariners GM Bill Bavasi. Anything as long as it's not truly a one-for-one deal.

Manny Ramirez, OF - Red Sox (http://www.nbcsports.com/mlb_players/343118/detail.html)
The Boston Herald says little has gone on with the Manny Ramirez talks on Wednesday and that Ramirez is expected to remain with the Red Sox. Michael Silverman says the Mariners refused to part with J.J. Putz and Adam Jones and apparently made Putz untouchable in talks. So, Putz, a soon-to-be 30-year-old reliever with a career ERA of 3.47 in 205 innings, cannot be had in trade talks, but Rafael Soriano, a soon-to-be 27-year-old reliever with a 2.89 ERA in 171 innings, is up for grabs for a No. 4 starter. Genius.

Well, we did steal Matt Thornton from under Bavasi's nose. It looks like par for the course. :redneck
