    Trades for hitters could highlight baseball's winter meetings
    Baseball's annual rumor fest is upon us. The winter meetings start Monday in San Diego, and what traditionally deteriorates into a week of overblown analysis of overblown hype might actually amount to something big. One reason: teams looking for offense...
