Is MLB's Trade Market or Free-Agent Market Stronger This Winter?

David Price's potential availability could give the trade market an edge over the starting pitchers on the free agent market.

I recently ranked the 2014 free-agent class as the best of the past decade, making the upcoming offseason one of the most interesting in recent years before even considering the potential trade possibilities. There are also some impact names being floated around in trade rumors.

But how does the trade market stack up against a strong free-agent class? 

It's a tough comparison to make because not all players mentioned in trade rumors, nor the ones who are actually being shopped by their team, will be traded. But if we take the top seven free agents, according to my rankings at MLBDepthCharts, and match them up against the top seven players who are reported to be on the trade block, it's a competition worth debating. 

I'm siding with the trade market. Feel free to agree or disagree in the comments section below.
