Day 1 brought us an extremely low result for Dan Uggla, nettng the dumb Marlins only Omar Infante and Mike Dunn. Atlanta performed highway robbery here, selling high on Infante and buying (miraculously) low on Uggla. This is not how you do good business. I know its only for one year of Uggla, but c'mon.
The Diamondbacks shocked everyone by being up front about their wanting to listen to offers for their franchise player, Justin Upton. One exec noted Logan Morrison & Ricky Nolasco would get it done. How about Chris Carter and Trevor Cahill?
Less shocking: Boston announced they were willing to trade Marco Scutaro
The Tigers showed that teams still massively overvalue relievers, signing Joaquin Benoit to a 3 year $16.5MM deal, ouch. If the Tigers are serious about spending this offseason, this is not the way to start.
Hopefully this thread will contain all the rumors, moves and surprises of today.
