MLB: Yankees-Brian McCann Press Conference Reuters

Here’s the rundown of where this winter’s top 150 free agents are landing, continuously updated throughout the offseason. Re-signings are posted in red, while players signing with new teams are in blue.

Stars denote players who received qualifying offers and thus will cost their new team a draft pick if they sign elsewhere.

    How is Phil Hughes 15 spots higher than Roy Halladay. I’d probably pick Halladay even if his shoulder actually fell off before I’d pick Hughes… Scorned Yankee fan I guess..

    • cohnjusack - Nov 12, 2013 at 9:47 PM

      Last two seasons:

      Halladay: 5.15 ERA, 7.5 K/9, 3.0 BB/9, 1.2 HR/9, 218 innings age 37
      Hughes: 4.65 ERA, 7.6 K/9, 2.4 BB/9, 1.6 HR/9, 337 innings age 28

      I’d take Halladay to, he has a better track record of success (obviously) and maybe there’s still some gas left in the tank. But this is far from an outrageous ranking. Looking at the last 2 years alone, Hughes would be a way better bet than Halladay.

      • kinggeorge96 - Nov 14, 2013 at 2:50 PM

        They say, “The stats don’t lie,” but given all the shoulder trouble Halladay has had, those numbers aren’t representative of his actual ability.

        Hughes shot his load in the bullpen a few years back and can’t seem to keep it straight for more than 2 innings… He’ll probably go somewhere and be a respectable 4th or 5th starter.

      • sabathiawouldbegoodattheeighthtoo - Dec 6, 2013 at 5:29 PM

        Who knows if Halladay can ever really pitch again? We didn’t see any evidence last season.

        Hughes mainly needed a bigger ball park. Sure he is HR prone, and needs to figure out how to put hitters away once he gets 2 strikes, but there is potential there. I don’t think I would want my team to guarantee Halladay a 25-man roster spot at this point.

    • raysfan1 - Dec 6, 2013 at 2:37 PM

      The ranking was done in the descending order of expected contract value, not estimation of which player is truly superior.

    • rje49 - Dec 16, 2013 at 8:40 PM

      Yeah, must be tough for the Yankees; they’ve signed 4 of the top 10 FAs, with Tanaka to go. Half of the top 10!

  2. missthemexpos - Nov 12, 2013 at 8:19 PM

    Bottom line, the hot stove season is just getting started.

  3. maikoch - Nov 12, 2013 at 8:47 PM

    Jesus Christ, the automatic tag generator must have nearly had a meltdown.

    • Matthew Pouliot - Nov 12, 2013 at 11:15 PM

      Yeah, sorry, it’s ludicrous. I don’t think there’s anything I can actually do about it, though.

      • scoutsaysweitersisabust - Nov 12, 2013 at 11:30 PM

        Just be glad you don’t have to do it manually. Tagging would take longer than putting together the damn post in the first place.

    • maikoch - Nov 13, 2013 at 12:52 AM

      Not complaining, just observing.

  4. scoutsaysweitersisabust - Nov 12, 2013 at 11:34 PM

    Am I the only one who has absolutely zero excitement over this group of free agents? My god this is a sorry group. I guess the days of rotisserie style free agency periods are long gone. Now it’s all about drafting and making smart trades.

    • cur68 - Dec 16, 2013 at 9:28 PM

      Frankly I think you won’t get worked up for the FA crop until one of them is Matthew Richard Wieters. Did you see that Boras has indicated a willingness to discuss extensions for Wieters and Davis? I figure this is not unlike Gollum gesturing for Bilbo to precede him into Shelob’s Lair.

  5. mullwall412 - Nov 12, 2013 at 11:49 PM

    Wandy Rodriguez isn’t a free agent, he exercised his player option

    • Matthew Pouliot - Nov 12, 2013 at 11:55 PM

      Whoops, forgot I had even included him on the original list, given that he didn’t really have any other choice than to exercise it.

      • mullwall412 - Nov 13, 2013 at 12:10 AM

        Yea, might end up being a blessing in disguise for the Pirates that he got hurt last year

  6. tcostant - Nov 13, 2013 at 10:25 AM

    Did any player accept the qualifying offer this year? Last year lesser player who got a qualifying offer, had they market despressed. I’m wondering if Hiroki Kuroda, Stephen Drew or Kendrys Morales considered just taking the $14M one year deal.

    • Matthew Pouliot - Nov 13, 2013 at 7:29 PM

      Nope, all 13 turned it down. I thought Morales should have accepted.

  7. mfavier7 - Nov 20, 2013 at 6:23 PM

    Chris Carpenter: retired

  8. matt20hew - Nov 23, 2013 at 10:26 PM

    Reblogged this on Today's News.

  9. canadatude - Nov 24, 2013 at 4:40 PM

    Ted Lilly is signing with the Blue Jays so he can have a re-match fight with the manager (Gibbons). Winner takes all.

  10. raysfan1 - Dec 6, 2013 at 2:39 PM

    Didn’t #68 Kelly Kohnson sign with the Yankees?

    • Matthew Pouliot - Dec 6, 2013 at 2:50 PM

      Thanks. Got that and Konerko up to date now.

  11. tribescribe - Dec 6, 2013 at 2:39 PM

    Are the Konerko and Kelly Johnson signings official yet? I thought both had been announced.

  12. karlkolchak - Dec 6, 2013 at 2:44 PM

    Konerko reupped with the White Sox.

  13. schniz61 - Dec 6, 2013 at 2:56 PM

    Stauffer signed with the Padres. You know, the Padres, that team in San Diego, you know, San Diego, where people come on vacation and love it so much until they find out how much it costs to live here. You do realize there is an MLB team down here in the corner of the U.S.?

    • Matthew Pouliot - Dec 6, 2013 at 5:11 PM

      Actually, I blew it there because he wasn’t even a free agent in the first place. Still had another year of arbitration to go.

  14. stevenewatson - Dec 6, 2013 at 4:34 PM

    Hiroki Kuroda should be in red – re-sign with the Yankees, no?

    • Matthew Pouliot - Dec 6, 2013 at 5:11 PM

      Yes, he should be and now is :)

  15. sabathiawouldbegoodattheeighthtoo - Dec 6, 2013 at 5:32 PM

    What are the chances of the Yankees signing Stephen Drew now that Cano is gone? And if they do, do they play him at second, third or short (moving Jeter)?

  16. proudlycanadian - Dec 25, 2013 at 8:39 AM

    Still a lot of pitchers unsigned and waiting for Tanaka to go first.

  17. yahmule - Dec 25, 2013 at 9:57 AM

    Have a Merry Christmas, everybody.

  18. innout10 - Dec 25, 2013 at 4:33 PM

    Market hasn’t set up for elite SPs looking for multi year deal yet. Tanaka will be the key to that

  19. janessa31888 - Dec 26, 2013 at 9:13 AM

    How much money does Ubaldo think hes going to get?
