Will winter meetings sparks finally light the hot stove fire?

The Marlins' salary dump continued, and critics took turns bashing them. A group of relievers cashed in. And, well, the rest of this week was more of a fact-finding mission than a splash of activity. Big moves are coming, it's just a matter of when.

Toronto Blue Jays Manager John Gibbons on the daunting challenges facing his club in the top-heavy American League East: "If you want to beat those guys (Yankees/Red Sox) you got to try and keep pace. You still have to have your plan and target your guys and hopefully land them."

Carlos Gonzalez's value has declined after a down year in Colorado, but he's quietly attracting interest as a free agent because he's likely to sign a short-term deal to reestablish his market value. The Blue Jays, Royals, Rays, Giants and Athletics are among the teams that have CarGo on their radar. "There will be a rush once we all realize we can't get what we want," said a personnel man for one of the clubs keeping an eye on Gonzalez.

Morris, Trammell make Baseball Hall of Fame

Former Tigers teammates Jack Morris and Alan Trammell were elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame by the Modern Baseball Era Committee after previously falling short of induction to Cooperstown.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

The debate over Jack Morris was one of the most contentious in Hall of Fame history, and while the writers ultimately rejected Morris, he's now going to Cooperstown -- and he'll be joined by Alan Trammell, his longtime Tigers teammate. Morris and Trammell were elected by the 16-person Modern Era Ballot committee. Trammell should have been elected long ago, a player who ranked eighth all time among shortstops in WAR. Morris doesn't have much of an analytic case with a 3.90 career ERA, but he does have Game 7 of the 1991 World Series. This time, that was enough to get him the support he needed.

Are the Blue Jays the best fit for J.D. Martinez?

The Jays have Josh Donaldson for one more year before he hits free agency. If they're going to keep him, they better go all-in and sign a big bat now that Jose Bautista's gone.

Free agents who should sign now: Jose Bautista

Last offseason, Bautista ended up waiting until the end of January and this offseason is in an even worse position than last after a 2017 that was worse than 2016.
