After all the trades and signings last week, baseball's annual winter meetings opened with relative quiet.

David Price still was being dangled on the trade market by the Tampa Bay Rays. Shin-Soo Choo and Nelson Cruz could be signed for a large pile of cash.

Opening day of the four-day session was notable mostly for the election of retired managers Joe Torre, Tony La Russa and Bobby Cox to the Hall of Fame by the expansion era committee. The other big news was the retirement of two-time Cy Young Award winner Roy Halladay after 16 seasons at age 36.
