Royals Review Free Agent Prediction Thread

While Dayton Moore has indicated he does not expect to sign any big time free agents this winter, other GMs will be busy at work making monumentally stupid financially decisions that will drag down their franchise for years with an embarrassing albatross contract. Although it is considered a down market, there are still superstar players available like Albert Pujols, Prince Fielder, and Willie Bloomquist. Who will add the final piece to their championship ballclub?


It is up to you to predict. Whoever predicts the most correct free agent destinations will win a FREE year-long membership to Royals Review. Predict where the following free agents sign. You may list any MLB team, "Japan", "Retired", or "Eaten by a Rabid Monkey in the Off-Season." You don't have to list their salary, but if you want to, knock yourself out, you pop-tart eating baseball nerd.
