Off-Season Moves in Baseball as of 11/30/2012

It’s been an eventful last 15 days in baseball and teams are making their moves to try and the always elusive World Series Championships. Thus far I have been impressed with what the Toronto Blue Jays have done. The Atlanta Braves have made some good moves as well. It’s only November and a lot of off-season left but Spring Training will be here before you know that. As always I only report on deals that have been made official. I am not going to announce a deal then have it not go through. I am not ESPN or Fox Sports who jumps the gun on everything.With that being said here is a recap of all the wheeling, dealing, signing, trades and releases that have happened since I last wrote.
