Sports Illustrated writer Ben Reiter published his eighth annual Reiter 50, his list of the top fifty free agents and where he thinks the best fit for each one is.
So far, he is 0-for-2, having picked Matt Weiters to go to the Braves (he accepted the Orioles’ qualifying offer) and having picked Jordan Zimmerman to go to the Cubs. It was reported yesterday that Zimmerman signed with the Detroit Tigers for five years and $110 million.
Only one player in his top fifty does he have going to the Rangers. Hint, it’s one of the top ten free agents.
Of the two Rangers free agents, he think the best place for Yovani Gallardo is Pittsburgh and the best fit for Mike Napoli is Baltimore.
It’s a good article which you can read here. And it’s always a fun to go back and gauge how accurate these guys actually are.
