MLB Free Agency: Predicting Contracts and Destinations for the Top 50 FAs

Prince Fielder and Albert Pujols will combine to pull down some $400 million this winter as they both become free agents, with rich teams like the Chicago Cubs and Texas Rangers much in need of their services.

Beyond those two, however, it's an open question: Who else can command a nine-figure deal? Who will be underrated and will go to some small-market team for a below-market rate?

The pitching side of this free-agent class is tissue-thin, so Mark Buehrle and a handful of relievers will get overpaid a bit.

Meanwhile, the drop-off is substantial from Fielder, Pujols and Jose Reyes to the rest of the available position players, but the depth the market offers will make Clint Barmes, Ryan Doumit and Casey Blake (among others) undervalued commodities.

Here are predictions for the top 50 available free agents. Listed in bold will be their projected destination and the specifics of the contract they will receive.
