Where will the top 3 free agents go?

            I think Jason Bay will stay with the Red Sox (I hope so). He's a good player the Red Sox want to keep and will offer him enough money. Matt Holliday will definitely leave the Cardinals. Obviously, the Yankees are the first team that comes to mind when thinking about free agents. Plus, the Yankees released Matsui and Damon and don't have a left fielder ready for the majors that can step in and perform for their expectations. Lastly, John Lackey will go to the Dodgers. He's already familiar with LA, and the Dodgers are lacking an ace completely (Chad Billingsley? Clayton Kershaw?). The Dodgers will probably be willing to spend the money as well with two NLCS exits in a row.

Now the Sox have signed Marco Scutaro, at least they have a SS. But now they probably won't make a push for Lackey as signing Scutaro and trying to keep Bay will be enough for the winter (in major signings)

Baseball Offseason

We should have went for Chone Figgins and John lackey; they both have TONS of post season exp. AND they  know who to play against the AL east teams such as NY and tampaalso we could have had Matt Halliday I do not think Jay Bay is being sincere in staying in Boston he knows he can get $$ after a season and a half in Boston and now wants to " shop around"Figgins can play 3rdYouk @ 1stPetey stays @ 2ndand Gonzo could have still been SS because Scutaro has no post season exp. only one season in Oak.It did not make sense to let Alex walk only to pick up another high priced SS that will not be that great at the plateat least Gonzo knew Fenway enough to know how and where to try and hit the ball in the 8 + 9 holeTheo Gives me HeadachesStop using Coupons out of the Sunday paper and Spend some $$ on good players
