After a relatively quiet first day at the winter meetings, Tuesday afternoon was anything but, as we saw one of the biggest blockbuster trades in recent memory.

The Chicago White Sox finally found an offer to their liking for ace Chris Sale, shipping him to Boston in exchange for a package of four prospects headlined by infielder Yoan Moncada and right-hander Michael Kopech.

That wasn’t all the Red Sox accomplished, though, as they also swung a trade to acquire setup man Tyler Thornburg from the Milwaukee Brewers and signed first baseman Mitch Moreland to a one-year deal, per Roster Resource.

There were a handful of other notable signings as well, with Wilson Ramos, Carlos Gomez and Fernando Rodney all finding new homes. As the free-agent market continues to dwindle, perhaps it will further fan the flames on the trade market.

What does Day 3 of the meetings have in store?
