SAN DIEGO (AP) - Baseball's winter meetings lacking spectacular swaps will be remembered as the Scott Boras show. The prominent sports agent dominated each of the three days of winter meetings in San Diego with a nine-figure contract. He reached deals for Stephen Strasburg, Gerrit Cole and Anthony Rendon that totaled $814 million. Just two trades were announced. The San Francisco Giants acquired shortstop Zack Cozart and infield prospect Will Wilson from the Los Angeles Angels for a player to be named or cash. The Chicago White Sox obtained outfielder Nomar Mazara from the Texas Rangers for outfield prospect Steele Walker.
