MLB's 2009 Top 50 Free Agents Predictions: 21-30

Eli GreenspanSenior Analyst INovember 10, 2008

21. Casey Blake, Dodgers
Blake is coming off a big year, having helped the Dodgers reach the NLCS. However, he prefers to play at a small venue and will likely return to the Midwest.
Prediction: Twins

22. Jon Garland, Angels
Garland is a solid pitcher who will eat a lot of innings. He is coming off a 14-win season and has dominated in years past, so he is an interesting character. I expect teams that miss out on their first targets to go after him.
Prediction: Dodgers

23. Andy Pettitte, Yankees
Pettitte wants to play with the Yankees, and the Yankees would like him. Seems like a solid match.
Prediction: Yankees

24. Jamie Moyer, Phillies
Moyer had a great year with the Phillies and is a leader in the clubhouse. Another one year deal after a 16-win season makes sense.
Prediction: Phillies

25. Randy Wolf, Astros
Wolf did a great job for the Astros after he was let go by the Padres, and the Astros have already expressed interest in re-signing him. 
Prediction: Astros

26. Edgar Renteria, Tigers
Renteria was let go by the Tigers after a rough season, but would likely bounce back playing for a good team in a strong, close clubhouse. A reunion in St. Louis makes sense.

Prediction: Cardinals

27. Brad Penny, Dodgers
Penny was let go by the Dodgers despite winning 38 games over the past three seasons. He is hurt, but I'm sure several teams will be in on him.
Prediction: Angels

28. John Smoltz, Braves
A career Brave, GM Frank Wren will bring him back.
Prediction: Braves

29. Mark Grudzielanek, Royals
Grudzielanek has kept a pretty solid average over the past couple of seasons and will likely land a back up or platoon job somewhere.
Prediction: Rockies

30. Randy Johnson, Diamondbacks
The Diamondbacks cannot afford to bring Randy Johnson back, so he will hit the open market looking to reach 300-wins. 
Prediction: Rangers
