Believe it or not, the 2013 season is more than half over. And while there is still plenty of baseball left to play before a team wins the World Series, we are already looking towards the 2013-2014 free-agency period.
Which team is going to dish out the big contracts this winter? What players are going to get overpaid for their services? These are some of the questions that start to get asked this time of year.
The value of certain potential free agents won't take too much of a hit based on a single season's performance. Robinson Cano, for instance, will be sure to get a hefty contract this coming winter, despite what happens the rest of the way.
But there are several potential free agents whose current struggles could be diminishing their value as we head towards the winter shopping period.
