http://msn.foxsports.com/mlb/story/8895550/Remaining-Free-Agents-List

It would take too long for me to type them all out, but they're all there in that list. Who are some of the ones you see going soon, who are some that you want for your team?

http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/news?slug=txhotstoveftr&prov=st&type=lgns

That's a link of who Yahoo feels are the best remaining free agents.

I would love to see the Cubs snatch someone like Oliver Perez or Braden Looper, a cheap starter for insurance reasons, since they do have several pitchers that can go down in their starting rotation.

As for the top 5 remaining ones, Manny's asking for more than he'll get, Adam Dunn not going anywhere yet is a huge surprise to me, Ben Sheets is a great pitcher, but I'm worried about his health. I'm pretty shocked that Hudson hasn't signed anywhere yet, and Bobby Abreu may be old, but he's still got some gas in the tank.

The Jays could use another solid rotation pitcher, and a guy who can CONSISTENTLY get hits. I wouldn't mind seeing them get O-Dogg back, Abreu would be nice to, but how much money is he after?

I think Abreu's asking for something like 3 years at $15 million per year, too much for what he really brings to the table anymore.

I'd personally have him in the $10-12 million range for 2 years, which would change things from a 3 year $45 million deal to a 2 year $24 million deal.

...and don't you guys have a brand new stadium? Hopefully they fix those holes before they have to play any games there, or else someone could get hurt.

I tend to be decent at those, although usually they are not funny. Then again, the mental image with that one his pretty hilarious. Reminds me of the days back before any of us were born when people would be able to have picnics on the outfield grass and stuff (some outfield fences went well past 600 feet back then).

true in the old yankee stadium like old old, monument park used to be in the outfield not behind a fence, sp the left fielder would have to play the ball off or in between the statue or monuments. crazy days.
ps i like how you can make slide shows, did not know you could do this
