Flipping Arencibia+ for a 1B would be an ideal move IMO.

Also, another proven pitcher like a Haren/Marcum/maybe even McCarthy on a 1 or 2 year deal would be great to solidify the rotation.
Edwin Encarnacion can, and perhaps should, be considered the 1B. His defense was passable there, and it didn't effect his hitting. IMO, an affordable RH bat (ala Jonny Gomes 2011) should be acquired to platoon with Lind at DH. I do agree that there are no other glaring holes that need to be filled in the lineup.
