ESPN.com has just posted a partial, potential free agent list for this off season. It is by no means complete but it'll give Sox fans an idea of who might be available and whom the Sox will make excuses for NOT signing! (sigh...)

Position players:

Edgardo Alfonzo - 2b, 3b

Some folks who could definately help the Sox, but with our owner it isn't going to happen!

Well for the most part I think we would be out of the mix on position players unless for some reason Javy Lopez's price tag fell dramatically, but an SP wouldnt be out of the question......Doesnt need to be a superstar, but at least someone who will give what Ritchie was expected to produce when he got here......I wouldnt mind Jamie Moyer provided he didnt cost too much....craft veteran sounds nice right now

I can't see us being interested in any position players. Catcher is the only position I'd consider signing, but Lopez and Pudges knees are both about shot I believe. When I look at the pitchers one word comes to mind, old. I can't imagine any of those guys wanting to spend the last couple years of their careers with this team, or for that matter Jerry paying them to come here. I wouldn't mind seeing Stanton just to have a reliable lefty in the pen. I shudder everytime Porzio takes the hill.
