A look at whats happening today at the baseball winter meetings in Oxon Hill, Maryland:---CLOSING TIMEIt was a good week for several top closers, with Aroldis Chapman and Mark Melancon getting rich deals and Wade Davis winding up with the World Series champion Cubs. As teams pack up and leave the D.C. area, star reliever Kenley Jansen is still on the free agent market. Who knows -- last season, the Yankees employed Chapman, Andrew Miller and Dellin Betances in the same bullpen. Would they ever consider a trio of Chapman, Betances and Jansen?CAPITAL GAINSChris Sale, Matt Holliday and Ian Desmond are among several players who switched clubs, and they could become crowd favorites in their new homes.
