It's a really bad time of the year to try to fix your bullpen but that is really where we are at right now. Forget getting one piece or even two, we need a complete overhaul. Here's some pieces I would suggest we go and get:
1. Andrew Miller, LHRP, Boston- He's my number one target. He is having a phenominal year. He could shore up our LH issue but he's looking like he could be a dominant closer at some point. We could use him in both roles this year.
2. Antonio Bastardo, LHRP, Philly- He's not the best option but he's pretty solid and we can then FINALLY rid ourselves of Coke. I don't think he'd cost too much either.
3. Thayer or Stauffer, RHRP, SD- Both these guys are pretty proven bullpen guys that are not going to cost you too much but will supply some reliability in the pen for the 7th inning.
4. LaTroy Hawkins, RHRP/Closer, Colorado- Not a big name but the guy is having a very nice year. Another low cost guy that can fill in for the 7th or even close a game or two for you.
Get me three of these guys, preferrably both lefties, and one of the righties. This would put us in the drivers seat for the playoffs and beyond.
