Here is the rest of San Francisco Chronicles' John Shea's list regarding the top free agents and possible destinations: – Carlos Beltran: Shea believes that his “tender knees” will keep him away from center field, and believes he could go to the American League so he can be a designated hitter. The chances of him returning to San Francisco are 50/50 according to Shea and he suggests the Indians as another possible destination for him. The Mariners could be a long shot for the switch hitting outfielder. – Josh Willingham: He had a productive season in Oakland this year, but according to Shea the A's “might not want to pay what he'll get elsewhere.” He adds that Willingham could provide a “complementary pop” from the right side of the plate. The chances of him returning to the A's according to Shea are low, and adds that he could sign with the White Sox. He views the Reds as a long shot. – Michael Cuddyer: As an utility man, the Giants could pursue him as their next left fielder says Shea. His chances of returning to the Twins are 50/50 and he adds that another good fit for him could be the Rockies. The Red Sox are considered a long shot. – David Ortiz: He wanted a two-year deal with the Red Sox, but they never talked to him about that possibility and according to Shea his comments about the team's recent drama won't help his case to return with the team. He says that the Blue Jays could be a good fit for him and views the Rays as a long shot. Image by Keith Allison under the Creative Commons License.
