There sure figures to be a bunch of talent to be had this time next year. That's quite an impressive list....much moreso than this year.

That was my first thought, my next was, that at that point, a lot of those guys are just names, and once-were-good guys.

Plus, it seems like there's always a better crop of free agents next year every year, and a lot of them get re-signed or don't look as good or get hurt or retire by the time next year becomes this year.
