KC wouldn't accept that deal unless we throw in Mejia or Tapia/Fulmer, however that's not a bad team. Wheeler; Cingrani, and Harvey are all question marks, however if one of those guys pans out as a #3, than I'd take that. Obviously, you'd have to get some extra starters, if only one of those guys listed above pan out. I would love if we can keep Gee and move Dickey and Santana for Gentry and Holland, this way we'll have 3 proven pitchers(assuming Gee bounces back from the injury) who are young(2 of those being locked up in Niese and Holland) and we can give a couple of months to Mejia or Familia to try out them out as starters until Wheeler comes up in July.
Wright will be signed this off season.
I like it except 2 things.

2) As much as I love the idea, I'm not going to go as far as saying "5 ace rotation". It would be good, but NO 5 ace. That's overrating times a trillion.
With Hairston, I was looking primarily for a RH outfielder that could platoon with Kirk, if necessary, or become a regular if Kirk faltered. Also for a RH power bat off the bench, and I don't really see any affordable FAs that fit that bill.
