3) I agree . . and disagree. We can always use some low risk options, and I hope we resign Capuano, and if healthy again, Young. But what we really need is a couple of sure fire arms.
a)Parnell is not the closer of the future, and if there is one in the organization, he's not ready now. So we need to sign a real sure fire closer. Probably not one as expensive as Papelbon or Bell, but perhaps a Capps or Rauch. Then shore up the bullpen with other low risk - high reward guys.
b) We won't compete in the NL East with the rotation we have. We need to trade for a top of the rotation #1 or 2 starter to add to Santana.
4) The starting position players are OK, except maybe at catching. But we need one more goos bench player to add to Murphy, Evans and Tyrner/Tejada. David DeJesus might just fit the bill here.
