We’ve seen enough of these free-agent salary projections by now that I feel comfortable dispensing with the chit-chat and heading straight into it. With the GM Meetings taking this place this week, we could actually get a sense of the accuracy of some of the guesses out there pretty soon. The latest slate comes from Dave Cameron at Fangraphs, who added a twist by enlisting the wisdom of the crowd to help him out.
You’ll want to check out the piece for a look at his entire top 50, but I’ve included a names below that could be of interest to the Cubs and/or their fans (number is Cameron’s ranking).
