Re: Free agents for 09??
That is a very depressing list of free agents.
That shows me just how important it will be for the Reds to keep Adam Dunn. The Reds will not be able to replace his production by bringing in a free agent.
Teixeira is the cream of the free agent crop, but I highly doubt Atlanta will allow him to hit the market. He will be signed to a long term contract very soon. In fact, most of the names on that list will not actually reach the market.
The one position with lots of good options on that FA list is Closer, which the Reds don't need.
I am sure Dunn is hoping the Reds let him walk. He would be the best available player on the market and would be looking at a huge contract if given the chance to sell his services to the highest bidder.
