MLB free-agency season will be upon us soon, and like fans are each winter, we will be obsessed with where players like All-Star outfielder Josh Hamilton end up.
Yet while guys like Hamilton and Zack Greinke will surely get a lot of press regarding their next contracts, some of the best players on the market are sure to fly under the radar. Keep in mind these men aren't exactly what most would call superstars, but rather, players who bring their own special something to the table and have qualities unseen in most run-of-the-mill baseball men.
These unique skills come in a variety of forms, from being a great leader to a pest at the plate to just being a great locker room guy or even a clutch playoff performer.
Sure, they may not be worthy of $20 million a year, but they are still players who are undeniably valuable when push comes to shove. In fact, one of them may make the difference between missing the playoffs and/or winning the World Series.
It's time to create another special team here at B/R, ladies and gentlemen. This time, it's the intangibles squad.
