Stand too close to the fire and you get burned.

Detroit gets their closer.

How crazy was Tuesday? Crazy enough that the lines at Epcot are going to be ridiculous at Epcot next week because the GMs are going to have plenty of time on their hands.

Recapping the action, courtesy of your overlords at SB Nation:

Tigers sign closer Joe Nathan to 2-year contract
You may have forgotten this by now, but Detroit has landed its coveted "proven closer" for around $20 million over two years.

Dexter Fowler trade a steal for the Astros
For the expected price of a reliever, I wanted the Royals to make a play for Fowler. Looks like the Astros pulled a fast one.

Yankees, Jacoby Ellsbury agree to 7-year deal per reports
Tuesday continues to be bonkers in MLB as the Bronx Bombers are closing in on a deal with the former Red Sox center fielder.

Rays acquire Ryan Hanigan in 3-way trade with Reds, Diamondbacks
Hanigan is set to become the Rays primary starter at catcher in 2014 while Jose Lobaton is now expendable.

Marlins, Jarrod Saltalamacchia reportedly agree to 3-year deal
Miami has reached a three-year agreement with the Palm Beach native.

Acquiring Scott Kazmir, Jim Johnson, and Craig Gentry, A's reload for another run
It's not "Moneyball," but then neither was "Moneyball"

Brian Wilson free agency: Dodgers 'close' to signing reliever
He won't close for the Dodgers, but Wilson looks to be making a return to Los Angeles anyway.

Not to mention the Carlos Beltran sighting at The K. Complete with customized scoreboard message and everything. Wednesday is going to have a difficult time topping Tuesday. Good luck.
