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.

    Heading into the U.S. Open, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray have won 36 of the past 38 Grand Slam titles, a stretch dating to the 2005 French Open. Nowadays, there seems to be a growing sense — or hope, maybe — among the best of the rest on the men's tennis tour that the quartet might be more vulnerable than ever.

But even those who were on the team last year still have to try out.

    NYC homelessness and panhandling

    Homeless people still sleep under the Manhattan Bridge, but others who used to camp out near its base have been displaced by police and are now calling Park Avenue South home. Park Avenue South sits in one of the trendiest parts of Manhattan, with businesses, restaurants, hotels, and swank lofts. It's also the street corner home base of Tommy Lanfranchi and his domestic partner Nicole Kilroy, who've been in a methadone program for 10 years.
