Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.

Lately, a lot of baseball players have been drawing interest. Grady Sizemore has been drawing interest,” for instance. Brennan Boesch drew interest, and Jed Lowrie drew interest, and not long ago Ichiro Suzuki was drawing interest  There have always been baseball players who dabbled in various arts, including drawing, but few have attempted art as ambitious as drawing interest, a non-physical, non-visible concept that is extremely difficult to draw.  (Note: Yes. This entire piece is based on a pretty simple pun. You get it.)

Each player who draws interest does so in a particular way that speaks to his artistic philosophy and personal history. Recently, we collected some of of these drawings of interest, and we now present to you an exhibit of three of them. These players' drawings of interest will likely be on display throughout the month of January and, depending on demand, perhaps into spring training.

These are all rumors from baseball's winter meetings in Nashville. I swear it!

Editor's note: Sam recently found this piece we were supposed to run five years ago but that slipped through the cracks. Our bad. It probably won’t make any sense now, but no point in letting it go to waste.

Rumor Roundup: Wednesday, November 28

Daniel Rathman

David Wright disputes reports about the state of his extension talks, the Dodgers are determined to go big for Zack Greinke, and the Red Sox shop a player they traded for less than a year ago.

After watching the Angels bullpen blow an American League-high 22 saves last year, general manager Jerry DiPoto was determined to fortify his late-inning staff. DiPoto made his first move to that end on Tuesday morning, striking a one-year deal with Ryan Madson, who missed the 2012 season while recovering from Tommy John surgery. Meanwhile, after adding Scott Baker to the Cubs rotation earlier this month, Theo Epstein snagged another low-cost righty in Scott Feldman, who will reportedly earn $6-7 million next year.

Here are three other rumors that surfaced amid those signings:

Overthinking It: Why Justin Upton is Always About to Be Traded

6

Ben Lindbergh

It's a lot of fun to talk about Justin Upton being traded, which might be why reporters talk about it so much, and it might be why Kevin Towers talks about it so much.

At this point, it sort of seems as though Justin Upton has always been available, as if he was born on the trading block or at least debuted there before he made the majors. Upton trade rumors are as much an annual offseason ritual as Scott Boras’ binders, debates about Aroldis Chapman’s role, or worries about whether the Marlins are bad for baseball. He hasn’t actually been traded yet, not even once, but we’ve grown used to Upton existing in a perpetual state of about-to-be-dealt.

Difficult as it might be to believe, it’s been less than 2 ½ years since Upton was at the opposite end of the availability spectrum: untouchable. On March 3, 2010, the Diamondbacks signed Upton to a six-year, $51.25 million extension that runs through 2015. Just over three months later, on June 13, Nick Cafardo included this in the notes section of his column for the Boston Globe:
