    Some big names that I predict will most likely end up as a free agents after franchise tagging goes down....

    TOP FA Starting Pitchers:
    John Lackey
    Ted Lilly
    Tim Hudson
    Scott Baker
    Jair Jurrjens
    Aaron Harang
    Chris Capuano
    Chris Narveson

    TOP FA Relief Pitchers:
    Fernando Salas
    Marc Rzepczynski
    Mike Adams
    Antonio Bastardo
    Jesse Crain
    Brad Lincoln
    Koji Uehara
    Scott Elbert
    Matt Gurrier
    Daniel Bard
    Rafael Betencourt
    Nate Jones

    TOP Position Players:
    3b Alex Rodriguez
    SS Jimmy Rollins
    2B Chase Utley
    3B Aramis Ramirez
    OF Eric Young Jr
    OF Vernon Wells
    OF Carlos Gomez
    3B Chris Nelson
    1B Lance Berkman
    OF Norichika Aoki
    OF Torii Hunter
    DH David Ortiz
    C Jarrod Saltalamacchia
    OF Alfonso Soriano
    OF Ryan Ludwick
    SS Zack Cozart
    3B Placido Polanco

    FEARLESS PREDICTION OF FIRST PICK IN 2014 RULE 5 Draft:

    CF ERIC YOUNG JR - Miami Marlins
    [​IMG]
    Teams with the hardest decisions to make...
    1. Phillies : They have to keep Delmon Young and Cliff Lee in my opinion. That leaves them having to decide on keeping only 1 remaining player with Carlos Ruiz, Jimmy Rollins and Chase Utley eligible for free agency. Big changes in the future for the Fightin' Phils.

    2. Rockies - Well, re-signing CarGo is a no-brainer. So is re-uping with Jorge De La Rosa. They need a 3B, so a tough choice has to be made between two up and coming guys in Chris Nelson and Jordan Pacheco ( I would lean towards Pacheco, but the difference between the two is razor thin). That also leaves EY JR a free agent, a really nice player just hitting his prime. Tough luck first free agent period for Colorado.

    3. Brewers - Aramis Ramirez has to be let go. Do they decide to keep their insanely talented young starting rotation together (Rogers, Gallardo and Fiers) or do they let one of those three walk to keep Carlos Gomez or Norichika Aoki, two very good outfielders. Decisions, decisions.



    Just some food for though heading into the season. Not the best free agent pool (2015 looks sick). LOOKING FORWARD TO THE SEASON STARTING!

    I thought there would be more than that. I say teams should only be slowed to keep 2 guys to make it more interesting.
