MLB's Winter Meetings Open Today In Orlando

The brief, but glorious, 2013 off-season, is rapidly approaching an end. Today, MLB's Winter Meetings kick-off in Orlando, Florida. Red Sox GM Ben Cherington will be basking in the glory of a World Series Championship and (quite likely) an Executive of the Year Award. As The Boston Herald's Jon Tomase points out, the first order of business is dealing with the acceptance (highly unlikely) or rejection (almost a lock) of the three qulaifying offers made to Jacoby Ellsbury, Mike Napoli and Stephen Drew. Cherington may also begin talks with other GMs about possible trades. Stay tuned.
