    I think that Nov. 20th is the day when teams can begin signing free agents that were not previously on their own team.

    I didn’t know there were winter meetings in Indianapolis…I might have to go hang out downtown and try to find Ruben Amaro Jr., maybe bake him a cake or something to thank him for Cliff P. Lee.
