National Harbor, MD.--The Chicago White Sox have an "open for business" sign attached to their team after dealing away top five ace Chris Sale to the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday that was still the talk of the Winter Meetings. Now the White Sox have moved on to trying to move fellow starter Jose Quintana and third baseman Todd Frazier. The Washington Nationals are trying again to land someone, this time with Quintana. Meanwhile the Los Angeles Dodgers and Los Angeles Angels have had talks about Frazier.
-Before the Kansas City Royals agreed to deal closer Wade Davis to the Chicago Cubs, they first asked the New York Mets for Michael Conforto which was quickly rejected.
-The Houston Astros would have gotten Chris Sale if they were willing to move Alex Bregmann but that was a non-starter. They also are in on Quintana.
-Any minute now Aroldis Chapman will re-sign with the New York Yankees and Kenley Jansen will have to decide between the more money the Miami Marlins will give him or take less to go back to the Dodgers.
-Everyone here knows that Mark Trumbo is using the Seattle Mariners as leverage in his talks to re-sign with the Baltimore Orioles.
