The wheeling and dealing will go on long into the night, but the Baseball Trade Show at the Winter Meetings is winding down after three fun-filled days. Vendors from across the spectrum of baseball-related businesses showed off their wares, and attractions included the world's largest jersey and a real, live Brewers Famous Racing Sausage. It'll all happen again at next year's Meetings in Las Vegas.
