The Free Agent Game

Postby BronXBombers51 » Mon Oct 20, 2008 6:31 pm

Who is going where? I listed 15 free agents below. I have most of those who will be highly-sought. I threw a couple in (RJ, Pedro) purely because I'm interested in where they might end up. If I missed anyone terribly important, I'm willing to amend the list. Edit your posts until, let's say the World Series ends. Then posts are final and we can see who did the best at the end of the offseason. Go.

1. CC Sabathia
2. Mark Teixiera
3. AJ Burnett
4. Manny Ramirez
5. Ben Sheets
6. Adam Dunn
7. Francisco Rodriguez
8. Derek Lowe
9. Bobby Abreu
10. Pat Burrell
11. Rafael Furcal
12. Brian Fuentes
13. Milton Bradley
14. Randy Johnson
15. Pedro Martinez

Tiebreaker: Guess the total amount of money C.C. Sabathia signs for this winter. Whoever is closest wins a tiebreaker.

Seriously, we can do like a sig banner or something to that effect, unless someone has some other ideas.

OK, I'll play along, though this is a terribly tough exercise and I doubt I'll hit a bullseye on this:

1. CC Sabathia -- Angels
2. Mark Teixiera -- Yankees
3. AJ Burnett -- Orioles
4. Manny Ramirez -- Giants
5. Ben Sheets -- Yankees
6. Adam Dunn -- Nationals
7. Francisco Rodriguez -- Mets
8. Derek Lowe -- Blue Jays
9. Bobby Abreu -- re-signs
10. Pat Burrell -- re-signs
11. Rafael Furcal -- re-signs
12. Brian Fuentes -- Tigers
13. Milton Bradley -- Blue Jays
14. Randy Johnson -- Angels
15. Pedro Martinez -- Padres

(OK, last edit on 11/11. I'll leave it alone now as free agency starts soon.)
