With Christmas just around the corner, and the Winter GM Meetings already a thing of the past, Major League Baseball's Hot Stove league is well underway.
Going into this offseason, there was much talk about guys like Cliff Lee, the one true ace available, Jayson Werth, considered the best offensive threat on the market, and Carl Crawford, the superlative all-around threat coming off of arguably his best season.
Now, all of those names are spoken for with nine-figure contracts. Lee has taken his talents back to Broad Street, Werth won't get to reunite with Lee as he bolted for the Nationals, and Crawford will be fronting a revamped Red Sox lineup that will also feature Adrian Gonzalez, acquired in a trade with San Diego.
So where does that leave everyone else?
There is still plenty of talent left out there, and a number of teams looking to fill holes going into 2011. Well fear not, fearless reader! In this feature, we count down the top ten remaining free agents, and predict where they might be headed. So read on to make sense of the free agent landscape as it currently stands.
