Roy Halladay, Hanley Ramirez (again), Coco Crisp - they're dropping like flies, folks! With that said, here's our latest edition of Free Agent Frenzy . Please note that, as in past seasons, no player will be mentioned in this space more than once in a four-week span, because we don't want to beat you over the head all year long about the same players. Let's get going! Catcher: Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Red Sox (owned in 14.5 percent of FOXSports.com leagues) Salty is striking out at a horrific rate, but he has four home runs in 97 plate appearances, and as a lefty hitter he's the busier half of a platoon with David Ross.

Those days are long gone, but he's averaged 14 per year since then, and will play most days over the next couple of weeks for the Rangers while A.J. Pierzynski is on the DL. First base: Ch...

Two days ago, apropos of Roy Halladay‘s shoulder surgery, Eno Sarris asked, “Is Roy Halladay Done Done?” and a month ago, Paul Swydan asked a similar question about Todd Helton.
