Winter Meetings are upon us as John Mozeliak and Mike Girsch travel to San Diego to try to wheel and deal. Or at least go to the zoo or something.
Here is what we know from sources at the Winter Meetings...

Let's make moves. pic.twitter.com/Mfh4Vwbhqg
Stephen Strasburg has signed and not with the Cardinals
Strasburg and Nats have a deal— Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) December 9, 2019
Stephen Strasburg’s deal with the Washington Nationals is for seven years and more than $220 million, source tells ESPN.— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) December 9, 2019
The #Nats are deferring more than $80 million of Strasburg's $245 million contract.— Bob Nightengale (@BNightengale) December 9, 2019
So Anthony Rendon will likely be on the move?
Gerrit Cole looks to sign soon
Source: Gerrit Cole is increasingly likely to sign during this week’s winter meetings. His market is developing quickly, the source said, with the Strasburg signing giving further clarity. @MLBNetwork @MLB— Jon Morosi (@jonmorosi) December 9, 2019
Hear there’s a mystery team on Cole. Hard to imagine anyone thinks they are coming in late and outbidding the Yankees and 2 LA teams (even if one’s in Anaheim). No idea the identity of said team, but that’s why it’s a mystery.— Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) December 10, 2019
The Cardinals are looking for left-handed bats
Just exiting Monday with Mo. Of note: #stlcards remain in search of a left handed bat, not necessarily limited to the OF. Trade market is the focus more than the FA market (Calhoun, Dickerson, others).— Jeff Jones (@jmjones) December 10, 2019
“I would say we’re still in the game but I don’t know if we’re frontrunners in that at all” says Mo re: Ozuna. #stlcards see a significant gap in money, years.— Jeff Jones (@jmjones) December 10, 2019
As the #stlcards conduct a wide sweep for lefty bats, one that you should not expect to see on the opening day roster is switch hitter Dylan Carlson, who has “some players ahead” of him. That and more:https://t.co/wTrFNpyQYb— Jeff Jones (@jmjones) December 10, 2019
Per reports, the Texas Rangers have held talks over Nomar Mazara with the St. Louis Cardinals and the Arizona Diamondbackshttps://t.co/kILYuf5SsC— Nolan Writin' (@NolanWritinFS) December 10, 2019
Source : Marlins and Rangers have talked trade. Miami interested in one of their Outfielders. Mazara potentially. Rangers asking for the Marlins best big league players in return. No chance that happens.— Craig Mish (@CraigMish) December 10, 2019
The Rangers are looking to see if they can move one of their extra left-handed hitting outfielders: Nomar Mazara, Willie Calhoun or Shin-Soo Choo... Arizona could be a trade partner... they are looking for outfield help.— TR Sullivan (@Sullivan_Ranger) December 10, 2019
The Cardinals might be looking at relievers
what else is going on in baseball...
what the cardinals are up to...
KNOW THINE ENEMY...
the nl central
The Cubs strategy with Kris Bryant isn't complicated. They're keeping tabs on the market and hoping to pit teams that miss out on Rendon & Donaldson against each other to try and get the best return. The Braves, Dodgers, Phillies & others make sense https://t.co/VYdSL2ZOwA— Sahadev Sharma (@sahadevsharma) December 10, 2019
