Vote: Who will be on the move at the winter meetings?

 Manny Ramirez
Will the Manny Ramirez era in Boston come to an end?
The hot-stove world is a textbook example of a modern free-market economy in action, with supply and demand controlling the price teams pay to acquire what they need in free agency. But there is always more than a little old-world bartering going on at the same time, especially in a lean free-agent market like the one at hand.

With big-name free agents like Paul Konerko, Hideki Matsui, Billy Wagner and B.J. Ryan already off the market, teams will be forced to start pondering trades in order to patch holes and improve weaknesses. And baseball's winter meetings often serve as the market in which general managers sell their wares.

You've read which players Jayson Stark thinks could be on the move this winter, but where do you see some big names landing, SportsNation?
