Mark Trumbo and Brett Anderson trades seem imminent. Not much for excitement for Blue Jays fans but here is a open thread to discuss the moves of the day.
Here is a bit of news:

Not that it is Winter Meeting stuff...but Munenori Kawasaki wins aGibby for his 'I am Japanese' post game interview.

AA says he's been asked about nearly everyone on 25 man roster. Trade talks for SP usually lead to asks for Stroman or Sanchez— Shi Davidi (@ShiDavidi) December 10, 2013
If I was talking to the Jays, those are the two I'd ask for, baseball people aren't dumb.
