I would be surprised if we see a big ticket free agent starter sign before the winter meetings. I think Lester will go first, mainly because he has no draft pick attached to him, and because Scherzer/Shields want to have him help set the market given that there are big numbers floating about attached to his contract offers. I guess we'll see soon enough. Cruz going to Seattle was a nice piece to have come off the board, because it creates that much more of a demand for RH OF power. The Red Sox have a bunch of that to offer, and they'll be answering the phones from teams who are suddenly looking at Rios and Hunter as their primary options there.
