Free-Agent Predictions: Part 1

I'm going to be predicting where some of the top free-agents will be going next year. Let's see how close I can get to actuality, eh?

1. Cliff Lee: The prized left-hander, who I consider the second best pitcher in the game today, is not-suprisingly going to test the free-agent waters. Lee has proved to be dominant in the playoffs and will commend a TON of money on the open market. I have to predict the New York Yankees will sign the lefty, as they obviously have the cash and need another top-flight starter to pair with C.C. Sabathia. It will be interesting to see how a 1-2 punch of lefties will work in the postseason though. 5-years $125M

2. Carl Crawford: Was the star left-fielder for the Tampa Bay Rays, will definitely be on a new team next year. Had over 90 RBI in 2010, hitting .300+ and stealing a whopping 47 bases. While it might be bit of a hometown bias, i'm going with my Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim signing Crawford. It won't be cheap though, probably in the 6-year $120M range. He'll slot nicely into the top of the Mike Scioscia line-up.
