    Tim Dierkes free agent predictions

    Of course this means nothing but Tim Dierkes at mlbtraderumors wrote out his guesses as to where the top 50 free agents sign. He has the Twins signing Kazmir (high upside but high risk, IMO) and James Loney to play first base. (I think I'd prefer a RH power bat like Hart over Loney but Loney does play good defense, which is important).

    He also guesses that the Dodgers sign Tanaka, Morneau goes to the Rays and Joe Nathan to the Tigers (which makes so much sense I hate it).

    The thought of Kazmir being the only free agent signed pitcher for us makes me want to start practicing throwing up a little bit early.

    Kazmir at 2/16 sounds pretty good. I'd still like an additional guy on a longer term, but even Kazmir would be a step up from most of TR's past FA starter acquisitions.

    Not sure I want any part of Loney -- Tampa has the 1B magic lately, I am pretty sure he'd come down a bit here. Tampa is a great destination for Morneau, though.

    I would agree that Kazmir paired with a higher impact arm wouldn't be the worst thing in the world. I'm basing my preemptive spewing on Kazmir being our prized arm of the offseason, a la Correia last year. Preaching to the choir though.

    I have a little trouble believing someone who is predicting the Astros and the Padres to sign free agents
