It'll be interesting to see if they go after Manny (who supposedly likes the idea of padding his stats in CBP), or someone like Holliday via trade.
I thiunk we should look at Derek Lowe- groundball pitcher who would be a great 2/3 with hamels and myers. Bring back moyer and have a rotation of
1. Hamels
2. Lowe
3. Myers
4. Moyer
5. Blanton/ Happ/ Kenderick
---- Carrasco up by mid season

Then let Burrel walk. look at someone like Manny.. We can offer him the money, a great ballpark to get his HR's up, a great offense to play with and a very winnable division
1. Rollins
2. Utley
3. Manny
4. Howard
5. Werth
6. Victorino
7. Feliz
8. Marson/ Coste/ Ruiz

and have Dobbs, Jenkins and hopefully a speed guy on the bench.

Manny- 4 years 64 mil- 16 mil/per
Lowe- 4 years 52 mil- 13/mil per

and then let Burrel, Gordon, and other walk.

Bring back durbin at a reasonable price.
