MLB Free Agency: Predicting the Destinations for the Top 25 Players

The Hot Stove League is officially underway with qualifying offers already submitted and free agents now negotiating their next contracts with all 30 teams.

Josh Hamilton leads the pack as the most coveted and controversial free-agent hitter on the market, though it is unlikely he will approach the mega-contract signed by last offseason's top target, Albert Pujols.

After the 2010 MVP, we see an exciting bunch of center fielders and a few true sluggers who will continue to mash in the middle of the order wherever they sign.  

However, the next tier of free-agent hitters is in large part lacking true impact talent, and just a few of the available infielders will garner significant attention for a starting role.

This should create an offseason flush with trade rumors, but teams will first duke it out to see what they can afford on the free-agent market.

We saw the first major transaction of the winter on Monday when the Red Sox announced their new two-year contract with David Ortiz, marking the unofficial commencement of the free-agent spending spree.

Let's rank the top remaining hitters on the free-agent market and predict where each of the top 25 will sign over the next few months.
