    OK, this is a little late, but the only big-time player off the market appears to be Frank Thomas. So let's do this again!

    Pick 10 free agents and their 2007 destination. Winner gets to watch Uma perform a vasectomy on the winner of Idaho's Idaho HS FB pool!!!! :D ;D

    You can get the list of free agents here:

    Gary Matthews Jr: Red Sox
    Vicente Padilla: Rangers
    Trot Nixon: A's
    Andy Pettitte: Astros
    Jason Schmidt: Mariners

    Ask this guy where Zito's going: http://www.usatoday.com/sports/baseball/2006-11-14-boras-cover_x.htm

    His office wall, by the way, is fucking awesome.

    Soriano------Phillies (maybe wishful thinking, but i definatly think the phils could use him the most)
    Carlos Lee-----Astros (need a power bat in that lineup somewhere)
    Zito-------Mets (will be overpaid; will be the WORST signing of the offseason)
    Schmidt-------Mariners (staying on the west coast, but not with the giants)
    Bonds--------Giants(hes not going anywhere. period)
    Baldelli--------Marlins (although he is hurt almost all the time, he would fit in well with florida's cheap but productive ways)
    Baez---------Phillies(they need a RP that could close if needed; fits the bill perfectly)
    Luis Gonzalez--------Cardinals (strong rumblings that they have been after him for a while)
    Gil Meche--------Rangers (always sign at least one mediocre pitcher)
    Juan Pierre------Padres (nice fit in their hit and run philosophy at petco)

    That was a lot harder than i thought it be.

    There is no way the Phillies sign Soriano. None. They are the kings of finishing second year-round.

    And Aubrey Huff (Tigers?) will be the worst signing of the winter, because he's going to get four years.

    I hear the Brewers are hot on the trail of a utility outfielder past his sell date.

    Just like every other offseason.

    I read that Mulder might become a Blue Jay.
