MLB free agency season is fast approaching, and some big names are about to hit the market. Just how we watched intently as Albert Pujols and Prince Fielder picked new teams last winter, we will do the same this year when people like Josh Hamilton and Zack Greinke undergo the same task in a few months.
With various teams needing to plug some holes, bidding wars are sure to happen.
Yet, Hamilton and Greinke are far from the only top players on the market. There are a good number of players bound to land big paydays this winter, be it because of a breakout season or from various intangible skills they bring to the table. In other cases, it's not going to be as obvious regarding how much money some people are worth.
That said, it's safe to say that this year's free agency winter is going to have the stove so hot that Bud Selig and every team's GM may need to have the fire department on speed dial.
With these select players on the open market, fans will surely not help in cooling the stove down.
