Keith Law's top 50 free agents
His No. 1 free agent is no surprise: Cliff Lee. Likely Red Sox targets Carl Crawford and Jayson Werth come in at Nos. 2 and 3, respectively, with Sox free agents Adrian Beltre and Victor Martinez rounding out the top 5.
Bill Hall, who the Red Sox declined an option on earlier this week, comes in at No. 47.
