Which Free Agents Might Interest Astros In 2014?

Since MLB Trade Rumors decided to look at what the 2014 free agent class might look like, I decided to dream on who the Astros might go after.

Let's assume that enough of the young guys become contributors that Houston is starting to get better by the end of 2013. All they'd need at that point is a big time signing to get momentum going and possible put them back into playoff contention. Who makes sense out of that class?

The one guy that stands out to me is Tim Lincecum. Obviously. But, if Timmy really does hit the market in two years, Houston would be silly not to go after him, even at the ridiculous numbers he might command. Adding a big-time starter like him could put that rotation over the top and a way to compete with the Rangers and assorted other AL West teams.

Otherwise, I don't see a ton of players who make sense outside of David Wright (assuming Houston doesn't fix third base by then). Which means more than likely, they won't make a big splash that winter and this whole post was for naught.
