My thoughts are to sign the following free agents: Lefty reliever Mike Gonzalez, righty reliever Casey Janssen (UCLA guy), starting pitcher Kyle Lohse (Cali kid), and 3B/1B Kevin Youkilis. I know this doesn't sound all that Hollywood, but these guys are gamers and will fill our needs. As far as fourth/fifth outfielders go, we already have Alex Castellanos to go along with Kemp, Ethier and Crawford. Work with Castellanos on his D and we are good to go. On the infield go with AGonzalez, Ellis, Hanley, and Youk. Back-ups are Hairston, Cruz, and possibly Punto. AJ and FedEx behind the plate. Starting rotation of Kershaw, Lohse, Bills, Beckett, and Lilly. Bullpen of: League, Jansen, Belisario, Janssen, Gonzalez, Wright and Guerrier. We have Paco, Elbert, Tolly and Ames one phone call away for bullpen hlp. In another year Zach Lee, Matt Magill, and Chris Reed will be very close to breaking into the starting rotation, and Joc Pederson and Puig are coming fast as 4th/5th outfielders. We can trade Cappy and Harang for prospects to beef up the farm system, release Uribe and place Dee back at AAA for more seasoning. I am not giving up on him. Remember Dee is a great athlete who was rushed up and who played more hoops than baseball as a kid in Florida. Opening Day lineup (if Crawford is healthy): 1) Crawford; 2) Ellis; 3) Kemp; 4) A Gonzalez; 5) Ethier; 6) Ramirez; 7) Youkilis; 8) AJ; 9) Kershaw. If Crawford is not ready start Castellanos or Hairston and have Mark Ellis lead off.
