    My guess would be 9 or 10, including 5 or 6 out of these 7:
    1) Bruce,2) Latos, 3) Leake, 4) Mesoraco, 5) Cueto, 6) Billy Hamilton,
    7) Chapman

    All are under team control til then.

    Then maybe 4 out of the rest.

    Very suprised to see Latos so low on both lists, proven commodity under control through the 2015 season. I feel he's a very good bet to still be here.

    Cozart above him seems nuts to me - we don't know how good he'll be. We could see in 2 years a billy hamilton/ henry rodriguez infield combo.

    Maybe it's just me, but I think our best bets are proven major leaguers under club control through that time period, which is bruce, cueto, latos, leake. The only reason I put Mes above Cueto is, Cueto's gotta be worth the 10 mil option at that time.

    Cozart caught fire last year when he got called up so hopefully he plays the same way this year

    These 3 feel like locks right now...
    Bruce
    Latos
    Mes

    I expect to see Cueto as well. The rest are all maybes IMO.

    Can we also expect to see Pete Rose, Joe Price, Davey Concepcion, Barry Larkin, Kurt Stillwell, Eric Davis, Dave Parker, Ron Oester, and Tom Browning?

    I wouldn't get your hopes up on Votto, with the price first baseman are going for. Plus won't the Soxs and Yanks be looking for a 1st baseman by then? I'm preparing myself for life without Votto for my own Mental Health.

    I don't know about the Yanks and the Red Sox but the teams I see going after him are Dodgers, both Chicago teams, Mets, BlueJays, Orioles, Nationals and probably the M's.
