Ok this offseason we all know about CC, Sheets, Texeria, Manny,Lowe, Burnett, K-Rod, and the other free agents that will be available. Here are some guys that could be difference makers and might be on the move.
Eric Bedard- Ok after going big with this trade and coming off a surprise year big epectations were on Seatle. What happened was they flopped and were awful. They have a bad offense, 1 good pitcher, and not many young guys. They probally will be looking to trade their best asset.
Jake Peavy- You look at SD and other than Peavy and Adrian Gonzoloas there isnt much. They might decide to take a for the future approach. As for Peavy most guys would want out in his postion. This year his ERA was 2.85 and his record was 10-11. Wow that doesnt look goo. Yanks got prospects and cash possible connection?
Matt Holliday- Should have been 2007 MVP and this year hit .321 with 25 HR and 88 RBI with no protection. Hes a Boras guy the Rockies wont be able to pay. Who would want him though is the problem. Yanks probally wouldnt but could. Sox wont. Angels have to pay K-Rod/Tex/Vladdy. Dodgers/D-Backs in division. The only possibilty i see is Cubs, Mets, and Twins. I think the twins make a big splash and get him for next year.
Garret Atkins and Jeff Francis- Atkins will give you a .300 BA and 20 HR a year. Francis is a lefty entering prime who mgiht benifit from change of scenery. Individually neither are good enough for good prospects but together the Rockies could get a good package. Plus they have a good 3B prospect coming up and young starters.
Dan Uggla- Hes an abbritration guy this year. Gonna want like 5 mil and the marlins might not be willing to pay that. Good 2B are hard to come by and a young one like him attract interst. D-Backs, Dodgers, and Baltimore(use him as DH) might be interested.
Doc Holladay- If hes put on the block a huge bidding will begin because hes one of the best pitchers in last 5-7 years. He can go the distance and doesnt allow many runs or get injured. Red Sox and Yanks would love to get him but are in the division. Metscould become dominat with him and the White Sox/Phils/and AZ could all become very good with him. I doubt hes traded but if hes put on the block watch this one extenfully
