You don't have to be an experienced veteran of following Major League Baseball's offseason to know that the "mystery" team does exist. There is a team that will be creeping in the shadows, ready to swoop up and sign the big-name player that had been rumored to be headed to five other ballclubs at one time or another.
Sure, there are always the obvious moves. Dan Haren to the Dodgers. Josh Johnson to the Padres. Ricky Nolasco to the Twins. If you've been paying attention to the rumor mill, those should come as no surprise.
Brian McCann to the Yankees, though? Not so much. Of course, now we know that the Yankees signing any player shouldn't come as a surprise. They have deep pockets, and they're determined to put together a competitor for 2014.
For eight remaining high-profile free agents, I've done a little bit of thinking outside the box and named a dark-horse destination to consider for each.
