View Full Version : MLB Mock Offseason: Free Agents

10-24-2007, 10:41 PM
Before deciding which free agents to sign, keep this in mind. At the end of the process, we will determine three "winners" of this. Those will be "The Best Team", "The Most Improved Team", and "The Team with the Brightest Future." It is your goal as a GM to have one of these three teams. If you aren't worried about being declared one of our "winners" then just have fun.

Ok, in this thread post and questions or corrections. I tried to be as accurate as possible, but with nearly 200 free agents I'm bound to have a few mistakes. All players with player options were made free agents. If you can provide a link to story that suggests the player will return to his team, I'll remove him from the free agent list. I need every GM to post which Team Options they are exercising. If you don't exercise your option before free agency starts, that player becomes a free agent.
