NEW YORK (AP) -- Manny Ramirez, Mark Teixeira and Ben Sheets wasted no time in filing for free agency. The trio were among 65 players who filed on the first possible day in a year in which approximately 180 players can become free

Eligible players may file through Nov. 13, and teams can start negotiating money with players the following day. A trio of pitchers -- Milwaukee's CC Sabathia, Toronto's A.J. Burnett and the Los Angeles Angels' Francisco Rodriguez -- figure to be among the most prized free agents in this year's group.
