The Best Free Agents Left

Most of the guys from our Top 50 Free Agent post two months ago have been signed, leading to a potential discussion of "Who are the best free agents left out there?"

We know that the Mariner's have about $5 to $10 million that they are comfortably ready to spend. Most teams are quietly waiting in the wings for players' asking prices to drop. If you were a GM, which players on the following list entice you the most. For a perspective of "price is no object", or "best value". In terms of best value, we rank the remaining 20 as follows...

1. Jermaine Dye
2. John Smoltz
3. Chan Ho Park (as reliever only)
4. Erik Bedard
5. Joe Crede
6. Hank Blalock
7. Johnny Damon
8. Jonny Gomes
9. Yorvit Torrealba
10. Kiko Calero
11. Rob Quinlan
12. Reed Johnson
13. Adam Kennedy
14. Orlando Cab
15. Rod Barajas
16. Orlando Hud
17. Melvin Mora
18. Chien-Ming Wang
19. Nomar Garciaparra
20. Jarrod Washburn

Did we leave anyone really good out? Considering we actually have Melvin Mora and Jarrod Washburn on the list, I sure hope we didn't leave anyone out.
