Everyone's predicting the market for Chone Figgins these days and ESPN.com's Buster Olney is no exception. Olney guesses that the Yankees will sign Figgins, who could patrol left field for the Bombers and fill in at other positions when needed. Here are the rest of Olney's rumors:
- Olney points out that J.J. Hardy, whose free agency the Brewers delayed, picked up 130 days of service time on the DL over the years. It all counts, though.
- Olney hears that there are now just three contenders to buy the Rangers.
- One talent evaluator suggests MLB could adopt first and second half winners to lessen the advantage big market teams have.
