The hot stove is officially hot now. Earlier we had the Yoenis Cespedes video going viral (but now sadly gone) and we're just now seeing the swell of the Melky/Sanchez trade tide recede. Let's take a look at a few leftover stories that were overshadowed today:
MLB Braves ready for moves to improve - Ken Rosenthal
"The Braves are up to something. How can they not be after their historic collapse in September? No one should be immune from trade discussions. And, apparently, no one is."
Nats Insider: Nats way ahead of O's in rebuilding game
"Angelos, of course, is the No. 1 reason for this debacle. There may not be an owner in baseball with a worse reputation right now. How else could you explain LaCava -- long considered a GM-in-waiting -- turning down a job offer to remain as an assistant in Toronto?"
Correia activated off 60-day disabled list - By Gosh, It's Langosch
"The Pirates have taken Kevin Correia off the 60-day disabled list, a transaction that is necessary this month. By doing this, Correia reclaims a spot on the club’s 40-man roster."
Cuddyer Wants 4 Years, $52 million - Star-Tribune
"There are other reports that Cuddyer and his agent, Casey Close (Derek Jeter’s agent), are looking for four years and $52 million. Again, if the Twins signed him for that, I wouldn’t be upset, but I would definitely say that it is too much."
