Where will the land? (Predictions)


Where will the land what? :-? :-b


1 Cliff Lee - NYY. Sabathia will be deployed to talk him into signing. If Pettitte retires, this is pretty much a lock.

2 Carl Crawford - Angels. They've got Torii Hunter on the case, and are prepared to spend. Hopefully this much money takes them out of the Beltre race.

3 Jayson Werth - Tigers. Need: bat. Have: money

4 Adrian Beltre - Toronto. EdwinE = LF or cut, Bautista = RF, Beltre = 3B. In my opinion TOR will outbid BOS (and the A's :-C ). BOS probably won't overbid, because they feel they don't HAVE to have him.

5 Victor Martinez - White Sox. They need both a 1B and C right now. (And a DH)

6 Jorge de la Rosa - WAS. They'll miss out on Lee, probably by miles. This is their plan B.

7 Adam Dunn - ATL. This is too much of a perfect fit

8 Paul Konerko - CWS/ARI/SEA/DET. If CWS don't want him, quite a few teams will be interested as he's said he doesn't mind DHing.

9 Rafael Soriano - HOU/LAA/BAL. Some team is going to overpay for him. Not as many teams will be looking for a closer this year IMO.

10 Carlos Pena - BAL. If he's cheap enough TB might even have him back.

11 Carl Pavano - MIN.

12 Hiroki Kuroda - SEA. In the tiny chance that NYY don't get Lee, I'd imagine they'd be interested.

13 Brandon Webb - CLE. Somebody is going to pay real monies to find out if he's not finished. They will most likely regret it.

14 Javier Vazquez - ARI/HOU/WAS. Can't see him wanting to be in the AL again.

15 Manny Ramirez - Retired. Every "expert" is saying the A's, but I just can't see it. I don't think Manny has an unburned bridge left to cross.

Two names linked with the Tigers already that I hope don't even get a sniff from Dombrowski...
VMart is a liability at C, our 1B is already studly, and we've got plenty of guys already vying for our DH spot.
As for Werth... let's just say we're looking for a left-handed bat, and hopefully one who mixes in a shower or two every week.

1 Cliff Lee - TEX (I think Texas steps up on this one.)
2 Carl Crawford - LAA (Unfortunate, as I'd love to see him wearing the old' english... but LA is better than NY. A crap-ton of money here.)
3 Jayson Werth - BOS (They like dirtbags. In all seriousness, I just think he fits there.)
4 Adrian Beltre - BOS (They'll pay for his production, at least as much as anybody else will offer.)
5 Victor Martinez - CWS (No clue on this one really, just copied from above.)
6 Jorge de la Rosa - DET (I really like the idea of having a Verlander/Scherzer/Porcello/de la Rosa/Gallaraga rotation)
7 Adam Dunn - WAS (I haven't really heard too much about what he wants other than this... don't know if money is the deciding factor here)
8 Paul Konerko - ARI (Why not? If the White Sox decide they can't bring him back, they'll be ecstatic to see him in the NL, where he won't kill them like Thome did this year.)
9 Rafael Soriano - LAA (LA turns out to be the big spenders this off-season)
10 Carlos Pena - TB (No insight or thoughts here.)
11 Carl Pavano - MIN (They love him up there, and he's not going to command too much of a bidding war.)
12 Hiroki Kuroda - LAD (Again, not much of a pitching market this season, but I don't think a bidding war will start.)
13 Brandon Webb - ARI (If anybody needs this to pan out, it's the Dbacks. After years of waiting on him it would kill them to see him go anywhere else and succeed.)
14 Javier Vazquez - WAS (Anywhere in the National League would suit him just fine).
15 Manny Ramirez - SEA (because everyone involved is dumb.)

1 Cliff Lee - Tex will bid enough and remind Lee's wife about Yankee's fans and the ALCS
2 Carl Crawford - NYY (if they lose Lee they'll be all in on CC, the other one) LAA if NYY get LEE
3 Jayson Werth - Det as everyone has said they have money and need bats
4 Adrian Beltre - LAA as above have money need bats and need a 3b badly ( Boston know's they got a contract year out of him and won't pay for his post contract years)
5 Victor Martinez - everything i've seen has been Det as well
6 Jorge de la Rosa - Mets
7 Adam Dunn - Nats
8 Paul Konerko - CWS
9 Rafael Soriano - LAA
10 Carlos Pena - D-backs
11 Carl Pavano - Min
12 Hiroki Kuroda - Lad
13 Brandon Webb - no idea,minor league none gauranteed contract somewhere (punt)
14 Javier Vazquez - back to the ATL
15 Manny Ramirez - he may retire - he won't get paid what he thinks he's worth.

i don't have Boston taking anyone in the FA pool because i believe they are going all in on Adrian Gonzalez this off season. If they move Ellsbury in the deal you may see them push a little on CC i know it sounds crazy that they might bring on those 2 large contract's (when they sign A-gonz) but both players are young and there skill sets will play for the next 1/2 decade easy.

1 Cliff Lee - NYY - Texas won't be able to pony up enough dough.
2 Carl Crawford - LAA - They get their #1 target.
3 Jayson Werth - BOS - Why not?
4 Adrian Beltre - BOS - They won't let him get away.
5 Victor Martinez - DET - V-Mart back to the AL Central.
6 Jorge de la Rosa - DET - They could use a nice lefty.
7 Adam Dunn - TOR - AA goes and buys some more thunder.
8 Paul Konerko - ARI - ChiSox will part ways.
9 Rafael Soriano - LAA - They need a stud in the back end and Sori's price falls a touch here.
10 Carlos Pena - WSH - In an attempt to replace Dunn.
11 Carl Pavano - MIN - They love him in Minny.
12 Hiroki Kuroda - LAD - Dodgers will keep the rotation together.
13 Brandon Webb - WSH - Fail to get Lee, de la Rosa & Javquez. They tried similar plan with Wang in 2009.
14 Javier Vazquez - NYM - Javy wants to stay on the east coast and will prefer NL.
15 Manny Ramirez - TEX - Replaces Vlad.

Manny was in Toronto earlier this week and had previously expressed interest in playing for John Farrell.

Didn't he say he didn't like TOR or something a few years ago?

That was Ricciardi that essentially said his nickname isn't "Big Donkey" for nothing. He basically said that Dunn just happens to be a guy that can hit and doesn't care too much for playing baseball.

If the money is there, he'll go to Toronto.

I don't anticipate the money being there, though.
