The GM Meetings are upon us this week, but let's review the original content featured at MLBTR over the last seven days...
- Tim Dierkes published his annual list of the top 50 free agents with predictions about where they'll sign. The rest of the staff provided their predictions as well.
- Tim also broke down the trade market for relief pitchers, and detailed why closing jobs might be hard to come by.
- Ben Nicholson-Smith explained why most Type-A free agents won't sign right away, and also dug up some potential suitors for Gordon Beckham.
- Among the free agents whose stock we examined this week: Adam Dunn of the Nationals, J.J. Putz of the White Sox, Vladimir Guerrero of the Rangers, Lance Berkman of the Yankees, and Magglio Ordonez of the Tigers.
- We also looked at non-tender candidates like Ryan Ludwick of the Padres, Blaine Boyer of the Diamondbacks, and Kyle Davies of the Royals.
- My series looking at each team's spending on amateur prospects continued with the Mariners, Rays, and Rangers.
- We wanted to know if you think the Phillies are truly intent on keeping Jayson Werth in our lone poll question.
- Here's this week's lengthy edition of Baseball Blogs Weigh In.
- Tim's chat transcript can be found here.
- If you're new to MLBTR, here's a list of our regular features.
- Last, but certainly not least, the MLBTR iPhone app is now available!
