The window to haggle exclusively with one's own free agents closed last night, which means the Christmas free agent shopping season starts...well, now.
MLB.com has its own list of the top 25 free agents, a list that includes CoCo, Jinxie, and Linebrink. Usually our FA purchases are backup players, like a Graffanino or a Counsell. This season, though, we have a wad of cash and gaping holes in left field and closer, not to mention a desperate need for people who can get on base in front of Fielder and ROY Braun. The rumors are already flying (CoCo to Houston, Jinxie to Philadelphia), so don't be surprised if a big signing or two are made today. Be sure to check out the diaries on the right about options for our would-be catcher and closer.
