Posted: 07 August 2007 08:05 PM   [ Ignore ]

With the signings of Mark Buerhle, Eric Byrnes and possibly Carlos Zambrano, I was curious as to what you thought free agents might get this winter.

Predict the contracts (years and dollars, you don’t have to list team unless you want to) for the following free agents this winter:

C Paul LoDuca
C Jorge Posada
2B Tadahito Iguchi
2B Luis Castillo
SS David Eckstein
3B Mike Lowell
3B Pedro Feliz
OF Andruw Jones
OF Mike Cameron
OF Aaron Rowand
OF Torii Hunter
OF Jermaine Dye
OF Brad Wilkerson
OF Kosuke Fukodome
OF Adam Dunn (if he becomes a FA)

P Carlos Zambrano (assuming he doesn’t sign an extension)
P Jason Jennings
P Freddy Garcia
P Livan Hernandez
P Kyle Lohse
P Koji Uehara
P Carlos Silva

P Mariano Rivera
P Scott Linebrink
P Eric Gagne
P Francisco Cordero
P Armando Benitez

And for fun:
OF Barry Bonds
3B Alex Rodriguez

Any others you want to list:

Rodriguez counts as a free agent. You can bet Bora$ is going to behave as such and extract every dollar he can. He’ll re-sign with the Yankees at full market price, which is going to be something like 8 years, $200 million. (Yes, that maintains the roughly $25 million per year he’s currently making. I wouldn’t be shocked if he actually got a little more than that.)

I predict Zambrano will sign a $91.5 million extension with the Cubs, five years, with a player option for 2013.

Looks like another outrageous year for free agents.
