Here is the list of Type A free agent players who were offered arbitration by their team. None of them really have me all that excited that I would give up the pick.

  • Chone Figgins
  • John Lackey
  • Jose Valverde
  • Marco Scutaro
  • Mike Gonzalez
  • Rafael Soriano
  • Matt Holliday
  • Billy Wagner
  • Jason Bay
  • Rafael Betancourt

I’d love a guy like Holliday, but we can’t afford him. I’d be fine with bringing in Figgins, but I think that whoever signs him with probably overpay. He’s not an impact player, but I have a feeling he’s going to a get a notch under impact player money.
