Top 50 Free Agents - Important Dates to Know

Last year, on November 6th, 2007, I released my top 50 Free Agents rankings and predictions. You can check out the archive on my old blog if you are interested. It was my first shot at something like this, and it didn't end as well as I had hoped, getting only 20 of the top 50 correct. My best pick was probably Alex Rodriguez, who at this time last year was rumored to be going anywhere BUT the Bronx. I did end up getting six of the top 10 correct, so that's a plus.

 

Anyway, we will be releasing this year's top 50 over two days. Rankings and predictions for the 25th-50th ranked Free Agents will be posted the morning of Wednesday, 11/5. My top 25 will be posted on Saturday, 11/8. I am looking forward to getting your feedback and hopefully by March, looking back at a 60% clip, a 20% increase from the year before. Just for fun, here is the entire list of my predictions from last year; again, you can access my old blog to read the explanations for each pick.
