It is now Day Three since the end of the World Series, meaning teams have two days of exclusive negotiation left with their prospective free agents. It's tantamount to that awkward time when your live-in (now ex) girlfriend hasn't moved out yet because she's still looking for a new place and it's not the end of the month yet, so you're sleeping on the couch while she's going out with her friends and staying out until all hours and probably making out with skeevy dudes in flat-brimmed caps while you sit alone and catch up on the third season of "Lost." Just a hypothetical, of course.
Anyway, let's play a little game! Predict where the following free agents will wind up. For real fun, I also want you to predict the terms of the contracts for Jayson Werth, Cliff Lee, Carl Crawford, Adam Dunn, and Derek Jeter.
My picks below...
Jayson Werth - Red Sox, 5/$90MM
Cliff Lee - Yankees, 6/$140MM
Carl Crawford - Yankees, 6/$95MM
Adam Dunn - White Sox, 3/$50MM
Derek Jeter - Yankees, 3/$68MM
Rafael Soriano - Braves
Adrian Beltre - Red Sox
Javier Vazquez - Cubs
Victor Martinez - Rangers
