I don't think there's a single Free Agent of ours that we should re-sign. They're all either just come off freakishly good years and are going to get paid far too much (Kendrick, Albers) or just aren't very valuable or important. Kintzler will get a huge payday somewhere as a closer.

I know it backfired last year, but I maintain that trying to do a bullpen on the cheap with cast-off parts and non-roster invitees can work and is a better approach than overpaying free agents who may or may not pan out.
