Out Of Options - 2008

Rob Neyer sums up what it means to be "out of options" in his classic Transactions Primer:

When you hear that a player is "out of options," that means he's been on the 40-man roster during three different seasons, beginning with his fourth as a pro, and to be sent down again he'll have to clear waivers.

Readers often ask me where to find a list of players who are out of options.  If such a list is publicly available, I don't know where to find it.  With your help, let's compile that list here.  Please leave links in the comments if you can help fill in the gaps.
