    Top 111 2011 Free Agents

    Not a bad article. They've made it from 111 to 31 so far (20 at a time).

    When you click on the link for 70-51 it may give you a bad link page. Just go up to the URL, back space over -2/”at the end and hit enter - that should get you the right page.

    A couple of catchers maybe, if we don't pick up Ramon's contract and there are about 8-10 RH relievers I might consider bringing to camp if the price is right. Not much ekse though (unless a very heavily incentive-laden deal could be worked out for Webb).

    The Reds could let Ramon walk, sign Varitek for $1M+ w/incentives, let him platoon with Hanigan the 1st half, and then have Mesoraco come up mid-season to take his half of the platoon with Hanigan. It might be wishful thinking but I'd go for it.

    I'd take Webb if he'd take a minor league deal. I doubt he'll get anything more from another team unless his velocity improves alot over the next couple months. IF he could get his velocity back (and some of the young starting pitchers cooperate) it might make trading Arroyo in July, for help somewhere else, possible.

    Someone else who stood out for me was Jeff Francis.

    Could sign him as a lefty for the bullpen with a chance to possibly start. I'd be interested in seeing what he could do outside of Coors.

    A couple of weeks ago, the discussion was that Francis was going to resign with Colorado.
    "My mission is to be the ray of hope, the guy who stands out there on that beautiful field and owns up to his mistakes and lets people know it's never completely hopeless, no matter how bad it seems at the time. I have a platform and a message, and now I go to bed at night, sober and happy, praying I can be a good messenger." -Josh Hamilton

    In case anyone's interested, they've posted the rest of their rankings. Here's the link for the free agents they ranked 30-11:

    and here's the link for their top 10 free agents:

    edit: Kinda interesting that they have Dunn as the 4th best free agent ahead of guys like Adrian Beltre and Victor Martinez.
