Who tops the list of 2007 FA's?

Postby ScrappyDoo » Mon Aug 28, 2006 2:26 pm

Anyone know where I can find info regarding who the cream of the crop is regarding FA's for next year.

Just wondering because as a Sox fan we are already out of it. Maybe next year they will spend some money and pick up some quality FA and actually try and win another World Series.

They obviously have the money to spend, with the amount of revenue they make over a season.

The Yankees arent shy about spending money. The difference in payroll from the yankees to the red sox is about $100,000,000.
Which is more than the combined payrolls of all but like 6 teams in the majors.

Whats the difference if next year we are in 2nd in payroll with $190,000,000. Then maybe we could win a game.

Anyone wanna make a guess as to who the sox bring in over the offseason via trade or signing.

Wow, pretty slim pickings.

One thing that jumps out is how many Sox are FA's next year. 15 of them. The team is gonna look a whole lot different next year.

I see the Red Sox picking up Zito or Schmidt in the offseason. They need SP help pretty badly.

The Sox already got
1. Schilling
2. Beckett
3. Wakefield
4. Lester
5. Clement

so unless they some how move Clement (which is very unlikely), they shouldn't sign another SP that will most likley have trouble against AL East offense.

Actually Wakefield is going to be a FA according to the website.

Wakefield will have a team option every year, as long as the Red Sox picks up his team option from year before, so they are most likely keep him

the red sox aren't getting schmidt, the mariners most likely are.

as for zito, he wants to play in new york or LA.

I think Zito will be either a Yankee, a Met, a Padre or an A (if he thinks they can win it next year).

If he chooses money, Yanks or Mets. If he chooses his hometown, Padres.

Thanks for the sig, Chargersfan36.

I'm hearing some grumblings about Matsuzaka but I'm still not sure why Seibu will post him since he won't be a free agent until after 08. But he could be an interesting pitcher if he does become available.
