If you're looking to acquire a big time impact bat for your line up, look no further. Willis Coleman can do it all. Willis hits for average, power, and can even steal 30+ bases a year. At 32, his age is a bit of a concern, however we don't expect that to stop him from becoming the highest paid position player this off season.
Potential Suitors: New Orleans, New York, Washington DC, Hartford, Mexico City, Albuquerque, Helena.
Prediction: 5 years, $80 million
Charles "Big Chuck" Hemphill is the top 3B on the market. Hemphill is known for his gold glove caliber defense over at 3B. After putting up a career year with the bat, ( .336, 27 HR's, 105 RBI's) Hemphill looks to cash in at this year's winter meetings.
Potential Suitors: Boston, Washington D.C, Helena, Albuquerque.
Prediction: 4 years, $38 million
Felipe Navarro is by far the youngest high profile free agent. At 28, most scouts feel that Felipe has his best years ahead of him. Navarro has not missed a game since season 8.
Potential Suitors: Boston, Washington D.C., Helena, Atlanta, Albuquerque, Durham, Cincinnati
Prediction: 5 years, $40 million
Kyle Briggs might be the biggest power threat in this years FA class. Briggs has averaged almost 38 HR's a year in his 8 season career. Like Coleman, Brigg's age is a bit of a concern, however we don't see that stopping him from getting a lucrative contract this off season.
Potential Suitors: Durham, Helena, Washington D.C., Tampa Bay, Boston, Cincinnati, Florida, Hartford
Prediction: 3 years, $20 million
