They could go the other way and sign Garza long term, go after Sanchez or Hammels, and resign Dempster.

Hammels
Garza
Dempster
Samardzija

you can compete if you have that pitching staff. Plus I think they only have like $60 mil in contracts heading into next off season. If they wanted to spend big, they could compete in the short term, espeically if Rizzo comes up and performs as people hope.
