Where will the land? (Predictions)
Where will the land what?
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
). 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.
