Dugout Digest – light up the hot stove

Things are really starting to boil over on the hot stove after coming back from a nice Thanksgiving break. Over the past two days, we've seen the Rays hand out the first $100 million contract in their history to the very worthy Evan Longoria, Jeff Keppinger break his leg and potentially give the Rays a huge break (no pun intended) in bringing the utilityman back, the potential end of Brian Wilson in San Francisco, yet another new closer in Ryan Madson for the Angels, the Cubs inking Scott Feldman, some lowballing and revising of long-term offers between the Mets and David Wright, and All-Star catcher Carlos Ruiz get suspended 25 games for amphetamine usage.

Despite everything going on, we even managed to crank out some columns, focusing on just who the mystery team is in the BJ Upton sweepstakes and how deep the Dodgers pockets really are.

Exhausted yet? You should be. It's not even December yet!

Enjoy your offseason, everyone.
