A flurry of big-name, big-money moves over the past week have taken some of the star power out of baseball's annual winter meetings, which begin Monday in Orlando, Fla.
With many in baseball either en route to Orlando or planning to leave Sunday for the Winter Meetings, Saturday was a predictably slow news day -- not that anyone is likely complaining after the whirlwind that took place in the Hot Stove League this past week.
When Robinson Cano's deal was announced, rumors started flying about all the pieces the Mariners could be in the market to sign.
Robinson Cano won't be a Mariner after all, not that anyone truly believed the star second baseman was going to sign there despite a non-stop stream of updates on Thursday that Seattle was willing to pay him in the neighborhood of $225 million .

The flurry of activity this offseason could continue at the upcoming winter meetings with a trade of David Price.
Before cringing at Jackie Bradley Jr.'s .189 batting average with the Red Sox last year, and before thinking back to April, when he lost his job as the starting left fielder within two weeks of Opening Day, consider this: He never really had a chance.
You would celebrate too if you made as much money as Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton.
Matt Kemp could be on it. So could Andre Ethier, Carl Crawford, or Yasiel Puig, depending on how they're playing and who's pitching for the other team.
