We have made it through the bulk of free agency.
Fans are always looking for the next, best thing, the guy who can come in and make a difference. It’s now August and time to be honest — any guy who can really help your team has already been picked up. There are a few respectable role players left, each trying to get more money than teams are willing to shell out at this point. But the guys who make a big difference are gone.
Still, there are some names you know still out there. Here is a list of the key free agents on the market (this is not a complete list), by position, and in alphabetical order).
Covet them if you want. Just don’t over value them.
