Josh Hamilton's free agent status is the biggest story of the offseason.

Breaking down the five most important questions of the 2013 MLB offseason is a subjective task. Depending on your perspective, there are tons of burning questions to look forward to getting answered.

In my opinion, the five most burning questions this offseason are where Josh Hamilton will sign, how the rest of the free-agent outfield market will play out, how the outfield trade market will unfold, how Zack Greinke and the free-agent starting pitching market will shake out and what the Tampa Bay Rays are going to do with their surplus of starting pitching.

If you are a team in need of outfield help, this is a great winter to be shopping. However, if you are a team in need of infield help, the cupboard is extremely bare.

The starting pitching market lacks a true ace behind Greinke, but there is good depth that includes mid-rotation starters such as Anibal Sanchez, Hiroki Kuroda, Ryan Dempster, Brandon McCarthy, Dan Haren, Shaun Marcum, Edwin Jackson, Jeremy Guthrie and Carlos Villanueva.
