Vinny Castilla just signed with Montreal. Colorado needs a third baseman. I know who I picked and I think I have a winner with someone going somewhere based on this signing.

Drew and Perez? I know. I made picks for these two at a level 2 and level 6 for confidence. Who the heck knows where their going to end up.

I'm dickering with all my picks right now too.

website for 2004 team payrolls:

Who's got money and who doesn't!

Rangers have room but what do they need? Hmmmm, time to look at my picks again. Rangers, hmmm.

Not sayin'

Ah crap, hard to hide it when he's the only third baseman among the 15. Yes I see him switching leagues but hey what do I know?

BBC you were the first to post your choices (which I believe you've tweaked some) so why don't you start off the listing of your final free agent picks. The rest of us can follow.

The numbering system is that you give 15 to your most confident pick, 14 to the next and 1 to the pick you have least confidence in. Are the numbers you've assigned reversed? Do you feel most confident that Pedro Martinez will sign with the Texas Rangers? Do you feel least confident that varitek will stay? The numbers you've assigned indicate this yet your words say the opposite.

Please to clarify.

JASON VARITEK.........RED SOX....13 (he stays)
BRAD RADKE.............TWINS........12 (he says)
TROY GLAUS..............ROCKIES....11 (bombs away!)
CARL PAVANO...........RED SOX.....10 (Ct. boy comes home)
EDGAR RENTERIA......CARDINALS..9 (that GoldGlove carries wt.

Tino, interesting pix. Man I wrestled with Nomar going to Anaheim. What convinced me to leave him in Chicago was something I read where he "needs" to prove he's healthy for one year before he goes back home to SoCal. Do you know or did you read something that makes you put him out west with a 14! Where's Mia from???

Beltran too huh? Whatever George wants George gets plus the Lofton experiment was a bust and Bernie's on board with the move and I think you have the team's hispanic players probably talking to him like A-Rod, Jorge, Vasquez (who will stay a Yankee).

What else you have, Pedro playing games. I had him on both the Yankees and the Sox. Coin toss for me. You may be right.

Pavano to Arizona...WOW! Replacing Randy Johnson?
No way Glaus goes to Montreal. They just spent their money last week. Bad pick in my book.

Beltre only a 9? He's a lock going back to LA IMO. You picked Ordonez to Baltimore. Almost interchangeable with my Delgado pick.

BBC your picks are so distant from mine I can't begin to think what your thought process was. I am intrigued by your Garciaparra pick to LA. Thought the Dodgers were sold on the current SS Izturis (sp?). Fill me in! You also have Beltre going cross town? Dodgers will NEVER let that happen. Glaus to Oakland smells good. Nice pick. Chavez out??? Did you read something somewhere? Thats's the first I heard of that. I thought he was their cornerstone, of course outside of the Big 3 on the mound. Drew a 12 to Pittsburgh? WHAT DO YOU KNOW????

Ordonez to Colorado is equivalent to my Glaus to Colorado. They need someone to hit 98 homeruns next year and either one can do it up there in the thin air.

Radke??? As close as Milwaukee is to Minnesota and probably closer to Eau Claire, I don't see the Brewers spending any money this year on front line free agents, although it's an interesting pick. Care to share your thought process? Tino, you?

A couple things. One.. Kent had a meeting with the Tigers. His agent said they have an offer on the table from the Astros. So who knows.

Not that it matters, but I've been a Bucs fan for 30 years.
As for Drew going to Pittsburgh. Won't happen. Littlefield is too scared or stupid to spend the money. He'll waste it on another Mondesi type player. If they sign a free agent with a bat it will be a first baseman. There outfield will most likely be Bay, Redman and possibly Bobby Hill next season.

There is a rumor of Kendall for Klesko. Of course I don't see that happening. Kendall will go somewhere just who will take is big contract is the question.

Up late last night roadie?

4 have posted so far. Here's a list of common picks by teams and the confidence levels chosen & total confidence pts.:

Beltran to the Yankees - 15,15,13,15 = 58
Varitek stays with Boston - 13,11,15,14 = 53
Clemens stays with Astros - 4,8,14,13 = 39

THAT'S IT!

Other high confidence picks:

Beltre (3 teams) = 45
Radke (3 teams) = 41
Nomar (3 teams) = 38
Pedro ( 3 teams) - 31

You high confidence Clemens pickers need him to not retire. My low pick was based on him retiring.

Who has the most variation with teams and confidence level?

Drew - 4 teams, 1 to 12 confidence levels
Glaus - 4 teams, 1 to 11
Delgado - 4 teams, 3 to 10
Kent - 4 teams, 1 to 8

Looks like J. D. Drew is the biggest "mystery man" out there with 2 of us really curoius about BBC's picking him to Pittsburgh.

Any of you others out there who haven't posted, hey until one of these guys signs there's time for your picks plus you now have the "advantage" of the insight from 4 of us. hahaha Go ahead, make your picks based on what ours are. You're crazy if you do.

I DON'T see Clemens retiring again, not the year after he won the NL CY Young .

Atta boy Petey. Haven't looked too closely at the latest posts but will summarize.

Like Tino said, still time to get into this. Dec 6th is a big day for signings I think. Something to do with not having to give up a draft pick??? I dunno, something like that.
