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)
