- Carl Crawford, Boston Red Sox: 142 million
- Jayson Werth, Washington Nationals: 125 million
- Cliff Lee, Philadelphia Phillies: 120 million
- Adrian Beltre, Texas Rangers: 80 million
- Adam Dunn, Chicago White Sox: 56 million
Now some of these contracts will live up to their size and their hype, however at least one of them will blow up in the team's face. I wonder which one. Also kind of interesting that the New York Yankees had just the sixth biggest deal on the list at 51 million for their own Derek Jeter....
Now that everyone has had some time to cool off from the Giants latest late-season collapse, I think itâ€™s about time to start looking ahead. With the Eagles being eliminated from the playoffs, the dark cloud looming over the Giantsâ€™ offseason has now become the amount of key players who are free agents. With all of the uncertainty regarding the Collective Bargaining Agreement we donâ€™t know yet when free agency will open or exactly how the process will work.

Now, let's look at this Matt Holliday signing for what it actually is: John Mozeliak & Co. finally growing a pair and making the St. Louis Cardinals perennial contenders for years to come.
And if you think they made this offer to Holliday without considering the task of signing Albert Pujols after 2011, then you need to be committed... or move to Wrigleyville.
