Free Agent Predictions

Happy Black Friday, everyone. I hope none of you are being trampled by a bunch of idiots at Wal-Mart. Sometimes this country really makes me question mankind.

Anyway, I can't believe we I forgot this in our Top 50 Free Agents column, but here are our predictions for where we think our top free agents may land. One point of caution: I don't expect many of these to be correct. Would getting 20 out of 50 be considered successful? I guess we'll find out. Still, do NOT go to Vegas with any of these predictions.

  1. Matt Holliday = Red Sox
  2. John Lackey = Mariners
  3. Jason Bay = Angels
  4. Chone Figgins = Cubs
  5. Aroldis Chapman = Yankees
  6. Andy Pettitte = Yankees
  7. Rich Harden = Twins
  8. Randy Wolf = Dodgers
  9. Jose Valverde = Astros
  10. Noel Arguelles = Mets
  11. Adrian Beltre = Twins
  12. Nick Johnson = Mets
  13. Felipe Lopez = Dodgers
  14. Rafael Soriano = Braves
  15. Mike Cameron = Yankees
  16. Mike Gonzalez = Yankees
  17. Vladimir Guerrero = Mariners
  18. Orlando Hudson = Nationals
  19. Ben Sheets = Rangers
  20. Mark DeRosa = Phillies
  21. Jermaine Dye = A's
  22. Miguel Tejada = Phillies
  23. Johnny Damon = Yankees
  24. Adam LaRoche = Braves
  25. Marco Scutaro = Red Sox
  26. Joel Pineiro = Rockies
  27. Jason Marquis = Mets

  39. Placido Polanco = Padres
  40. Marlon Byrd = Giants
  41. Carl Pavano = Brewers

  1. I'll be shocked if Valverde ends up back on the Astros....as they are going to be terrible, it would not be a prudent investment. The Hawk is going to be closing games in 2010...and that is not good!
