Official Off The Bench Free Agent Predictions

I’d like to go on record with my free agent predictions before any of the major players sign anywhere. It’ll be interesting to look back in a couple months and see how I do. Note, this list is not intended to be comprehensive and I reserve the right to add to it as I get ideas on more player. I promise I won’t change any of my predictions already listed. Without further ado:

  • Albert Pujols: St. Louis Cardinals (c’mon, Albert’s not going anywhere)
  • Prince Fielder: Seattle Mariners
  • Jose Reyes: San Francisco Giants (just makes too much sense to not happen)
  • Mark Buehrle: Miami Marlins
  • CJ Wilson: New York Yankees (unfortunately)
  • Carlos Beltran: Milwaukee Brewers (if Fielder leaves Milwaukee, Beltran is going there, if not, he’ll stay in San Fran)
  • Jimmy Rollins: Philadelphia Phillies ( if Fielder leaves Milwaukee, he’s going there. If Reyes leaves New York, he could go there)
  • Ryan Madson: Washington Nationals (gives them the flexibility to trade Drew Storen for a centerfielder)
  • Aramis Ramirez: Miami Marlins (again, if Fielder leaves the Brewers, he could head there)
  • David Ortiz: Boston Red Sox
  • Heath Bell: San Diego Padres
  • Roy Oswalt: Pittsburgh Pirates ( I know I’ll be wrong on this one but I already wrote about what a good idea it is)
  • Rafael Furcal: New York Mets (Reyes’s short term replacement)
  • Vladamir Guerrero: Seattle Mariners
  • Yu Darvish: Staying in Japan

As I said, I’ll add to the list as I see fit (without changing what’s already there). Also, Sean will put his predictions up at some point.-Max Frankel
