With the MLB Hot Stove already cookin', Buster and Bob Nightengale discuss possible landing spots for the biggest names left in free agency. Plus, a special offseason "Hembo Knows" (22:13) and some Bleacher Tweets with a Texas twist (33:21).

Bradford Doolittle ESPN Staff Writer 

The White Sox made an early Hot Stove splash this morning by announcing a four-year, $73 million contract with free-agent catcher Yasmani Grandal. And, yes, they actually announced the terms in the press release, which is unusual and very much appreciated. It's a terrific pickup for a team on the verge of turning the corner. Grandal is a switch-hitter who frames well behind the dish, one of the few all-around catchers in the game right now.
