CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Next week, dignitaries from each of Major League Baseball's 30 teams will descend upon a massive convention center in Nashville to set their offseason plans into motion.
The Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center -- equipped with more than 2,700 rooms, 170 suites, 150 meeting rooms and 600,000 square feet of meeting space -- will host this year's Winter Meetings. The annual assembly will begin Monday morning and conclude with Thursday morning's Rule 5 Draft.
Members of each club's front office will gather to discuss free agency, potential trades and other transactions. Agents will flex their negotiating muscles. Reporters will chase all of the above for every last rumor or speck of information. The Winter Meetings are typically where the league's hot stove pushes the mercury in the thermometer over the edge.
There will be seminars, a trade show, a job fair and minor league and major league meetings. There will be appearances by managers. There will be a time for super-agent Scott Boras to hold court with the media.
The Rule 5 Draft marks the final event of the week. Teams with an open spot on their 40-man roster can pluck unprotected players from their adversaries so long as they keep those players on their major league roster. The Indians have not selected or lost any players in the major league portion of the Rule 5 Draft the last two years. In 2012, they lost relievers Hector Rondon to the Chicago Cubs and T McFarland to the Baltimore Orioles. They claimed Chris McGuinness from the Rangers, but they ultimately returned the first baseman to Texas.
More than anything, the Winter Meetings serve as a yearly springboard for teams to spin their transactional wheels a bit more rapidly. It's a time to commence new conversations and revisit old ones. The Indians placed the finishing touches on their deal with the Oakland Athletics for right fielder Brandon Moss during last year's meetings.
There has already been some moving and shaking this offseason, but the brunt of the action remains ahead. David Price, perhaps the top starting pitcher on the open market, signed a seven-year, $217 million contract with the Boston Red Sox. Price can opt out of the deal after three years. The Detroit Tigers inked hurler Jordan Zimmermann to a five-year, $110 million pact. The Toronto Blue Jays replaced Price by signing J.A. Happ and re-signing Marco Estrada. The Baltimore Orioles acquired slugger Mark Trumbo.
The Indians jumped into the action -- albeit on a much smaller scale -- with a trade for outfielder Collin Cowgill and minor league signings of reliever Joba Chamberlain and outfielder Shane Robinson. The Tribe's brain trust of Chris Antonetti, Mike Chernoff and Derek Falvey figure to stay busy next week as they continue to take calls on their starting pitchers and as they explore avenues to boost the club's offense and bullpen.
We'll have plenty of coverage from Nashville on, with a daily running blog, constant updates, the latest rumors, news and analysis, live chats, videos and more with Indians beat writers Paul Hoynes and Zack Meisel.
