For those of us who are huge baseball fans and enthusiasts, this is our favorite time of the year, especially those of us whose season came to an end over a month ago.

Free agency, trades, the general manager meetings and the winter meetings. All things where we fans salivate and we check every single, solitary, baseball website we can get our beady little eyes on.

There will be rumors from here until teams start to report to their respective spring training camps in Florida and Arizona.

The teams we root for will begin to take shape and we’ll watch and hope the players we want are interested in coming to our town.

Until then, we wait and we get ready for what could be the most interesting offseason in a long time.

But that’s why we love this time of year.
