The winter meetings are over and everyone has gone home. The Indians were very active on the free agent and trade fronts, but were unable to come away from the meetings with any new acquisitions in tow. But the offseason continues on, and the Indians are clearly looking to sign both Nick Swisher and Kevin Youkilis and trade Asdrubal Cabrera.

Winter Meetings Recap: Cabrera trade talks are fluid
Day four of the winter meetings is almost in the books. The news and rumors are winding down as people have already began departing Nashville, but the activity should continue through most of the rest of today. The Indians appear out of the blockbuster deal that centered around Justin Upton going to Texas, but they are still wheeling and dealing with trade talks on Cabrera. A decision on Kevin Youkilis could also be near, and lots more.

Winter Meetings Update: Is Cabrera finally moved today?
Here are some quick notes and news bits connected to the Indians coming out of Nashville as day four of the winter meetings gets underway today. The convoluted and crazy three or four team deal between the Indians, Rangers, Diamondbacks and other teams continues to dominate the news, and it appears momentum is being gained to get a deal done. Either way, it looks like Asdrubal Cabrera is not going to be an Indian for very much longer.

Corner of Carnegie & Ontario: Free agency in a tough market
The Cleveland Indians made several moves on Tuesday during the 2012-2013 Winter Meetings...almost. While the Indians seemed to walk down the familiar path of coming in second for a free agent, and missing out on a potential trade, the overall sense is that things are different. The Indians have money, and will spend it. The Indians have players and will trade them. They just have to find...the...first...taker...
