Who highlights next year's free agent crop?

Postby savvy_stu » Thu Jun 08, 2006 5:08 pm

Hey I'm trying to figure out who the top free agents will be next year. Are there any sites out there that have already compiled a list?

man, the pitching is weak. I do have some $$ to spend this offseason but there is no pitching.

They even count guys with options as FAs in this list such as Mark Buehrle

Arent Schmidt, Mussina and Smoltz all FA's at the end of the year?

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

I thought Mussina, Smoltz, & Schmidt has options on their contract. I know Mussina for sure does, 17Mill I believe. :-°

Anyone want to speculate where Torii Hunter will end up? A year ago I would have said the Yankees but it looks like Damon will work out fine for them. With his skills in center field, he could help a lot of teams out.

As a Twins fan, I'd hate to see him go (he is the face of the franchise) but the Twins LOVE signing players to big contracts.

Is Carlos Lee projected to stay in Milwaukee?? If not, I'd think he would get a ton on the FA market.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike
