What do you think should be the next on the agenda?
Exclude rule 5 draft.
next issue should be pitching, and I think similar transactions as we did last year will fit for SP, but for the BP, Axford and 2 others would be nice, there are some decent names out there and it shouldn't be hard.
At the same time I think it would probably behoove us to work the prospect side first and winter meetings is a perfect time for this. With OF virtually locked unless Choo still in the cards for RF, Young in CF and Granderson in LF, but we will say we are done in the OF. We need to off load some IF players starting with DUDa and Davis (still on the fence, but if we get burnt by a resurgent we can't say anything, maybe best for both).
EYJR and Brown can be our bench OF, with coverage on 2B. Flores and Satin can share 1B, and if we can get wowed then EYJR becomes 2B, but with Seattle we might be able to get some solid prospects for Davis, Duda I would take whatever we could get (training equipment, early level prospect, whatever), and Murphy we should be able to get something good. Flores or Satin could net us some prospect help if we wanted to go that way, but this may help us work a trade a midseason or next year to get us even closer.
So maybe dump first and then pitching, still trying to decide myself, but if we can get some decent prospects may allow us to get with Toronto and deal for Jose (unless he dated Alderson's daughter and broke her heart or something like that). Just not sure why he wasn't a keystone like Wright, still don't have that figured yet. But before we look at a leadoff hitter or SS unless the SS comes from dumping DUDa and Davis??? Even if it is a prospect who starts platooning with Tejada and can win the job...
I do think the BP will be the easiest to fix, so yes time to clear roster and again timing is impeccable. Thanks for working this out with me... Seriously, these are my thought processes and I am always willing to hear others POV and I can be swayed, by intelligence not empty disagreeances.
