Ranking Free Agents by WAR
Nothing like a little hot stove stoking to get the "Carpenter, Wainwright were robbed" taste out of your mouth. Ken Davidoff give us his rankings and predictions on where the players will go and for how much they will sign for.
Relevant Cardinal info:
1. Matt Holliday, OF
The most impactful player available. Prediction: Cardinals, seven years, $120 million
7. Adrian Beltre, 3B
Poor offensive numbers distract from his excellent defense. Prediction: Cardinals, one year, $6 million
Davidoff can’t be expected to follow every beat of course, so we know it’ll be Holliday and Freese playing third, or a cheapy fix (Xavier Nady) in LF and a more established player like Adrian Beltre, I would presume at 3B.
Tip o’ cap to Tango.
