5. Juan Pierre, Paul Lo Duca

Out they go, never to return: Josh Beckett. Carlos Delgado. Luis Castillo. Mike Lowell. All of them have already departed. And Lo Duca and Pierre will be next, almost certainly in that order.


The Marlins have 10 teams chasing the lovable Pierre. But they might sit back awhile and let the offers flood in (and, with any luck, position Pierre as a lower-budget alternative to Johnny Damon, assuming Damon signs before Groundhog's Day). Lo Duca, meanwhile, is looming as a hot option for teams tired of waiting on free agents Bengie Molina and Ramon Hernandez. The Mets, Rockies, Astros, Diamondbacks and even the Yankees are believed to have some level of interest.


And Gathright, viewed as a poor man's Juan Pierre by a slew of teams, could actually wind up replacing Pierre in Florida -- or in about 11 other places.
