Is there a FULL list of current free agents out there somewhere. I keep seeing ESPN talk about the most popular ones like Soriano (soon to be Met ), Zito, Lee, Garciaparra, Schmidt, etc.
Any idea where I could view a full list ?? Thanks in advance.
Btw for Mets fans... Floyd, Bradford, Mota, and R. Hernandez are free agents.
We need to resign Bradford and Mota !!
Yankee fans... anyone on the Yankees filing/filed for free agency ??
nobody big..cairo, fasano, green, dotel, and wilson filed..
cairo- bring him back
fasano- hes the man but i think they need a better hitting backup
dotel-id like to see him get another shot
wilson-dont let the door hit you on the way out
Thanks for all the help guys. Thanks especially to 49ersJetsfan for the list.
I'd love to have a another power hitting right hander in the lineup. I think Valentine was great for most of the year, but I wouldn't count on him contributing this way next year. Soriano is a homerun threat and a base stealing threat, and most importantly for the Mets: a RIGHT handed hitter to give the lineup it's lost balance. For people that think he'll be asking too much, I believe (please correct me if I'm wrong) he was asking for $12 million per year before this year... that number probably goes up to $15 million per year now. It's a lot, but I think we can and should spend the money on him.
On Zito and Matasuzaka:
I don't think there is anyway we get both. The Yankees will definitely be getting one (Matasuzaka IMO). I think we get Zito and I'd really like to pick up Schmidt.
I'd like to pick up Willis if it were possible, but I think it's highly unlikely that the Marlins (a division rival) trade him to us. We have a better shot of picking him up when he's a free agent. However, if there was a trade... I wouldn't trade Milledge and Heilman for Willis. I want to keep Heilman. Plus I don't think Milledge and Heilman are enough to get Willis.
