Point of (falling from) contention

ESPN's Keith Law, despite being a sabermetrician, put together an excellent list of the top 40 free agents this offseason. (Insider, deal with it.) #1 was Ramirez, followed by Matsuzaka (wrong), Soriano, and Schmidt. Carlos Lee was 7th, Barry Zito was FIFTEENTH (between Frank Thomas and Barry Bonds, which is right where he belongs), and the 26-40 group includes such luminaries as Mike Stanton, Vicente Padilla, Jeff Weaver, and Rich Aurilia. Who are some people that weren't on the list?

- Mark DeRosa
- Henry Blanco
- Kerry Wood

Is it too late to sign Julio Lugo? With the FA class having only two solid middle infielders (Lugo and Ray Durham), and the Cubs needing two middle infielders (and, apparently, to spend $300M)...is that a perfect fit or what? My head hurts just thinking about it.

Awesome, awesome blog. I've been jumping through a number of your posts and really enjoying it. Brilliant work on Zito--I couldn't agree more.

I actually found you guys by looking up Hundley's 2001 salary from b-r.com for the latest post on my blog. I'll link you guys up on ours since a couple of us are lifelong Cub fans too. If you get the chance, check ours out--especially this last post, which is all about free agency with a Cubs-ocentric view.

You guys definitely know your shit, and I'd love some input on where I went wrong in this last post or any other.
