So which free agents are left?

Using the list available on's Free Agent Tracker, there are 162 unsigned free agents at the moment. However, that total is a little off now as it still includes the two free agents who agreed to arbitration: Tony Graffanino and Travis Lee. It also includes Nomar Garciaparra as being unsigned.

The list can be sorted in different ways. If you do it alphabetically, you start with one of the worst players in the majors last year: Manny Alexander, who managed to get into 10 games for San Diego last year and some of them were before the Padres clinched the division.

Of course the name of Roger Clemens sort of stands out, but Clemens may be the least "free" of all the free agents. There are two Alex Gonzalezes available as well as an Eddie Perez and an Eduardo Perez.

There are two other aging sluggers still looking for new homes: Mike Piazza and Frank Thomas. There are a pair of longtime Yankee heroes available in Bernie Williams and Tino Martinez.

And two guys whom most GMs are approaching with their MLB and Congressionally approved 50-foot poles: Rafael Palmeiro and Sammy Sosa.

The Yankees are listed as having the most free agents left: 13.

The Angels and White Sox have the fewest free agents left: 2 each.

Now that Jacque Jones declined arbitration, I've got to think that Thomas and/or Piazza may finally sign with Minnesota within the next day or two.

And don't get me started on the Twins sitting on any new signings until they find out if theyll owe Jones $4M next season. Well, other than signing freaking Tony Batista.

Too bad the Dodgers didn't sign Piazza to mentor Navarro instead of Alomar.
