With the World Series in the past, it's free agent season. The Giants have five notable players preparing to test the waters on the open market.

The experts at HardBallTalk.com have compiled their list of the Top 150 free agents. Here's where the Giants rank:

55. Javier Lopez (LHP Giants – Age 36): Last time Lopez was a free agent, a barren market for left-handed relievers resulted in him getting a two-year, $8.5 million deal to stay with the Giants. This time around, he could again be considered the best of the bunch, but he has a lot more competition in the form of J.P. Howell, Boone Logan, Manny Parra, Scott Downs and the rehabbing Eric O’Flaherty. The Giants are expected to attempt to retain him.
