'Wild week' ahead at Winter Meetings for top players, agents, GMs

LAKE BUENA, VISTA, Fla. -- Baseball's Winter Meetings got off to a rousing start even before they officially began on Monday. Jayson Werth signed the most under-the-radar -- and, some might claim, over-the-top -- $126 million contract in baseball annals. New Mets GM Sandy Alderson said as much, when he cracked about Washington's deficit and also suggested the Werth deal made some of the Mets' old deals look "pretty good.'' And not long after Werth's stunning deal, which GM Mike Rizzo aptly called "monumental'' in Washington history, the Red Sox and superstar first baseman Adrian Gonzalez found enough common ground for Boston to sign off on their four-prospect trade with the Padres.
