Will the OF Market Get Started Already?

Is it strange that the Winter Meetings are just about done and none of the various FA OFs that have been discussed (Abreu, Bradley, Dunn, Ibanez) have been signed yet? 

 

And none of the potential trade targets (Hermida, Teahen, DeJesus, etc) have been dealt?

 

Maybe I wouldn't find it strange if it weren't for the fact the following teams have been reported as being interested in one or more of these players in the last few days:

 

Cubs, Mets, Phillies, Mariners, Angels, Braves, Nationals, Rays, Dodgers, Royals, Reds

 

 

I would have thought that one of them would have made a move by now, but they all seem to be waiting for the other shoe to drop.  Or, maybe the FAs are holding firm, playing teams against each other?  Any bets that at least one of the Big 4 OF FAs gets signed today?

 

EDIT: Ibanez reportedly signed with the Phillies Friday morning for 3 years $30M (link)
