New approach could speed Hot Stove

So then long time SF Giants GM Brian Sabean stands and says "We need to get younger, faster ..........

That's not surprising, since the GMs took advantage of a new system to survey the player landscape at this year's gathering at the Grand Cypress Resort. The new wrinkle could accelerate player movement in the coming weeks as some of the leg work has been circumvented.

A brainstorm of Red Sox GM Theo Epstein and Marlins president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest, the GMs cut right to the chase this year.

"I thought the GMs did something that was really well conceived and very helpful and that is in their meeting ," the 30 of them stood up individually and identified what their goals and their  targets were and what kind of deals they would consider.

Maybe the wheeling and dealing days of trades of yesterday have returned to baseball. The Phillies and Astros kicked off the trading with Lidge and Bourn but hopefully there will be a lot more trade movement this winter.
