    JD Martinez -
    Eric Hosmer -
    Jake Arrieta -
    Mike Moustakas -

    Nobody seems to be taking their interest seriously but I can really see the Cardinals signing Yu Darvish. It reunites him with pitching coach Mike Maddux and I think he'll come cheaper then Arrieta. I think Arrieta goes to Texas and the Cubs sign Alex Cobb.

    I think if the Brewers are gonna spend money they might bring Lorenzo Cain back into the fold, having him in CF would help Braun and Santana in the corners.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    My prediction is that some will be way too much, some will be to little and none will come from the Reds.

    I see Frazier back with the Yankees. He is the perfect vet for their young clubhouse and they loved him this year.
