So at this point, what do you guys feel is the biggest need to fill?

Starting pitcher?
1st Base/DH run producer?
2nd base?

i bet that gets taken care of soon too

if you're going for it , best to have big name players hitting #2 and #5
if JB gets hurt there's no one besides EE to count on for 25+ hr/90+ rbis
and that would suck

just like it would suck if one of the top 4 starters got hurt or romero still sucks
then we're down to 3 quality starters
so best to get another proven starter at least - preferably a good 3-4 starter
now if he demands his 30 starts then i dont know
it would suck
Tell me what team had 3+ guys hit 25+ homeruns and drive in 90+ rbis last season.

cant see milke hitting #5
you know reyes was hitting #3 2nd half of this season ??
It's all about depth, something that killed the Jays this season.

Yea, that's my understanding too. Man how I wish we still had Aaron Hill.
