Free Agent Market

I have finished the free agent market series here at ABATT. (All Baseball All The Time) Once players are signed, I will take them off the market they are on. I hope you liked it. It is fun to speculate on who will sign where, and this, along with the offseason needs post makes it easier to speculate. Remeber, if you find any players I’ve missed, please leave it in the comments. Here are the links to the free agent markets.

Catcher, First Base, Third Base, Shortstop, Second Base, Right Field, Center Field, Left Field, Designated Hitter, Starting Pitching, Closer, Middle Reliever
