While the free agency pool isn't as deep as in years past, there will be no shortage of large contracts handed out this winter.
Some players have pre-emptively been taken off the market, having signed extensions with their current team (ahem, Cole Hamels.) That hasn't entirely cleared the field of tremendous potential though.
In some form of serendipitous fortune, players that many believed would have signed extensions did not, broadening the spectrum of talent out there this season.
If last winter was any indication of the type of spending spree fans can expect, the following ten players may find themselves to be happy recipients of said fortunes.
