FANTASY BASEBALL WINTER MEETINGS REPORT: JOSE FERNANDEZ TALKS HEATING UP, BEN ZOBRIST METS DEAL IMMINENT

By Michael Wong

Nashville, TN.--Miami Marlins ace SP Jose Fernandez is taking over the Winter Meetings as the "will they or won't they" talks continue in terms of whether he actually will be moved.  After the New York Yankees and Arizona Diamondbacks distances themselves from the Hernandez chatter earlier in the day on Tuesday, the Los Angeles Dodgers became players later in the day.  In fact there is continued talk about a possible three-team trade that could involve the Houston Astros but the latter has refuted all rumors about Fernandez.  The Dodgers still remain steadfast in not including top prospect Julio Urias in any deal but the Marlins will likely require him to get any deal done. 

-I continue to get nothing but "Ben Zobrist is going to the Mets" talk here despite reports all over the map about whether the team offered three or four years.  Now the late word is that the Cubs are getting involved late in joining the Mets and Washington Nationals.  The word is that the Mets won Zobrist over in promising him second base exclusively which the St. Louis Cardinals and San Francisco Giants couldn't do but again he still has not signed which makes one wonder if the Cubs have his ear now.

-Andrew Miller is not going anywhere despite the Houston Astros continually trying to get their hands on him.  Instead the Yanks are engaged in talks for Starlin Castro from the Cubs, with the latter wanting to move the veteran so that they can get Javier Baez into second base.  On a related front, the Rays have stopped almost all contact with the Cubs about Baez since they wanted Jake Odorizzi. 

-The Los Angeles Angels I hear will end up with either Alex Gordon or Yoenis Cespedes, with Justin Upton the fallback. 

-The Mets are getting offers for Jon Niese and they also are trying to bring back Bartolo Colon.  If they get the idea Colon will come back, a trade of Niese is likely.
