MLBers Who'll Be Grossly Overpaid Next Year

The 2012 MLB playoffs are still going on, but Grady Sizemore and other players are already thinking about trying to cash in during the offseason.

This year's free agent class is relatively weak and should not be very exciting. Josh Hamilton will be the major prize of the offseason and Zack Greinke of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim will be the top pitcher on the market.

Will Hamilton leave the Texas Rangers after a disappointing finish to the season?

The rest of the free agents will not make big splashes, but several players will be overpaid because of the lack of depth in available talents. The New York Yankees are currently one game from being eliminated in the ALCS, so they could be looking to make some roster changes going into the 2013 regular season.

Desperate teams give average players big contracts. The players on this list are talented, but will be overcompensated by teams this winter.

Whether the players are free agents or eligible for arbitration, they will get a nice payday in the offseason.
