Over the winter, we will all sit on the edge of our seats and wait to see where major free agents like Robinson Cano will end up calling home. Understandably, some people will be disappointed. Every team can’t possibly sign a top-of-the-line free agent.
However, if you are one of the five teams I’m about to mention, it might not be as big of a deal as you might think. Free agents can obviously make a difference, but some teams are going to be much better next season due simply to internal improvement—whether it's young players developing or established veterans returning from injury.
It might not make the same kind of splash, but I don’t think anyone would complain about any type of step in the right direction.
