Things are happening. Discuss them.

The Yankees made qualifying offers to Rafael Soriano, Nick Swisher, and Hiroki Kuroda today. Soriano and Swisher are expected to decline, while rumors are that the qualifying is in the ballpark to get a one-year deal done with Kuroda.
Josh Hamilton is said to be seeking seven years and $175 million dollars. Oh.
Red Sox are said to be close to a two-year/$26 million dollar deal with David Ortiz. Good luck with that.
