NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

With the World Series over, the business of baseball and bidding on players can begin. In all, 147 players are eligible to negotiate and sign with any ball club beginning at 12:01 a.m. on November 5, 2013, according to news release from Major League Baseball and the players' union.

Keep in mind that on this list are some players who are technically free agents but have announced their retirement. Most notable among these are Mariano Rivera and Andy Pettitte.

The big names from the local teams include Robinson Cano, Curtis Granderson, and Hiroki Kuroda of the Yankees. LaTroy Hawkins and Daisuke Matsuzaka, who pitched a few games for the Mets this season, are also free agents.

Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman has said he wants to keep Cano in pinstripes, but the team may not offer the 31-year-old star second baseman the huge 10-year contract he is rumored to be seeking.

Several prominent players from the World Series champion Boston Red Sox are also on the list, including Jacoby Ellsbury, Mike Napoli, and Jarrod Saltalamacchia.

Slugger Carlos Beltran of the National League champion St. Louis Cardinals is also eligible.

This is the list of players, sorted by their most recent team.

    Outdoor basketball courts losing popularity

    Friday, July 25 2014 8:35 AM EDT2014-07-25 12:35:16 GMT
    Believe it or not this, some say New York's outdoor basketball courts are a dying entity. Even Rucker Park in Harlem -- where Dr. J and countless others honed their skills -- used to be standing room only all times of the day. Now there's plenty of room to stand on most days.Basketball programs like one at Chelsea Piers are gaining popularity. That means the place to hoop it up for many appears to be indoors.

    How Mets and Yankees can improve or contend in 2014

    With the All-Star break over and the second half of the MLB season well underway, the New York Mets (46-52 as of July 20) and the New York Yankees (50-47 as of July 20) find themselves in the same situations each team is accustomed to at this time of the season. The Yankees are in the middle of the AL East Division title while the Mets are scrapping for every win possible to stay relevant in the NL East. But while the record says one thing, reality says another.

    Derek Jeter makes All-Star farewell as AL beats NL 5-3

    Derek Jeter soaked in the adulation from fans and players during one more night on baseball's national stage, set the tone for the American League with a pregame speech and delivered two final All-Star hits. He received a 63-second standing ovation when he walked to the plate leading off the bottom of the first, another rousing cheer when he led off the third.
