Where is the blockbuster?

I have a horrible memory.

It never used to be that way - in college, a mere seven years ago, I had a photographic memory.  Phone numbers?  Dial them once, I knew them.  Historical dates?  Aced every test.  Batting average of some obscure Reds player from the 80s?  You could have asked me.  

Not anymore.  I can't even remember what day it is, or when I have meetings, or what Adam Dunn's final avergage was this year.  If I didn't have those Outlook reminders, I'd be fired by now.  Who knows what happened?  Too much beer in the last decade?  Some secret Army experiment disguised as a "flu shot?" Early signs of Alzheimer's?  

So, here's my question, now that I got through the filler:  Aren't more deals usually announced during the winter meetings than what we have seen?  Shouldn't we have heard about a blockbuster trade by now?  Two days have passed and all we have are a bunch of resignings and Sheffield in a Tigers uniform.

Is this some sort of indication that players won't be going places this year, or is it just my bad memory tricking me into thinking a few trades usually go down during these meetings?

Maybe I'm just getting impatient.  Maybe I just want that one magical player too badly.  Maybe I just miss Reds baseball.  Maybe I just wanted to post a diary.
