Like any offseason, there are bound to be surprises in the free agent market this winter. Hardly anyone correctly predicted the landing spot of many free-agents last offseason. How many saw Albert Pujols leaving St. Louis for Anaheim? Anyone think the Tigers would shell out $214 million for Prince Fielder?
In the tradition of wrongly—and sometimes grossly—predicting the landing spots of some of the top free agents on the market, I will give it a shot myself. Here are potential deals I can envision happening this winter, both the teams they sign with and the guaranteed portion of their contracts.
Some might seem crazy on the surface, but I think each makes at least a little bit of sense.
