The Winter Meetings have concluded and there was a ton of action, even more rumors, but not the action wasn't in the manner that was projected. It was everyone's expectation that these Winter Meetings would see a lot of trade action, not huge free agent signings...Boy were the wrong. Very little was heard from the Yankees or Red Sox, while usually tight pursed LA Angels and Miami Marlins made the biggest splash.
