If playes like Vandemeer are not good enough, pickings are going to be slim.
You basically want a #5 guy, but don't want to pay him very much. Few teams, even rebuilding ones are going to be willing to part with that. Any team in the playoffs is going to want him for depth.
I think your best bet is to go for an overpaid yet expiring contract.
The ideal would be a player like Andy Greene. Assuming NJ doesn't just resign him, he won't come cheap though. Another possibility: Martinek from the NYI.....
It's tough, just not that many teams are sellers at this point. Maybe in a couple of weeks, many more teams may throw in the towel.
