Predicting the rest of the free agent market

A couple weeks ago, I tried to predict where 5 of the top remaining free agents would land. I was wrong on the 3 that have signed since then, and my other two predictions don't look to strong.

My predictions were:
Teixeira to the Angels Actual: Yankees
Derek Lowe to the Mets Actual: Braves
Manny Ramirez to the Yankees Actual: None
Adam Dunn to the Dodgers Actual: None
Brian Futenes to the Cardinals Actual: Angels

Its been a close to impossible predicting where players will land in this tough market, but I will attempt to predict the rest of the top remaining free agents. (No particular order)

Manny Ramirez-Prediction: Dodgers, 3 years, $66 million
Adam Dunn-Prediction: Braves, 2 years, $24 million
Bobby Abreu-Prediction: Reds, 2 years, $22 million
Orlando Hudson-Prediction: Royals, 3 years, $30 million
Orlando Cabrera-Prediction: Athletics, 2 years, $18 million
Ben Sheets-Prediction: Rangers, 1 year, $8 million with $4 million in incentives
Andy Pettitte-Prediction: Yankees, 1 year, $10 million
Ken Griffey Jr.-Prediction: Mariners, 1 year, $7 million
Juan Cruz-Prediction: Tigers, 2 years, $9 million
Chad Cordero-Prediction: Brewers, 1 year, $5 million
Perdo Martinez-Prediction: Dodgers, 1 year, $6 million
Oliver Perez-Prediction: Mets, 4 years, $48 million
Randy Wolf-Prediction: Phillies, 2 years, $20 million with $10 million club option
