Moves I’d like to see in the offseason. Some of these might not be that popular but oh well:
– Athletics get Josh Willingham, Yusmeio Petit, and Miguel Olivo
Marlins get Mark Kotsay with half salary paid and Jason Kendall w/ half salary paid
– Sign Frank Catalanotto to take over in LF.
– Sign David Riske for the bullpen.
– Resign Joe Borowski.
– Resign Wes Helms
– Sign Damion Easley,
– Trade Sergio Mitre to Tigers for Nook Logan
– White Sox get Ricky Nolasco and Jason Vargas
Marlins get Freddy Garcia w/half salary paid
Matt Treanor, Damion Easley, Alfredo Amezaga, Nook Logan, Wes Helms
Chris Resop, Randy Messenger, Joe Borowski, David Riske, Logan Kensing, Carlos Martinez,
Reasons for moves:
Why trade Nolasco? So we can get a good year out of playoff tested Garcia and get draft picks after the year.
Reason for trading Willingham, acquiring Kotsay and Kendall, and signing Catalonotto? Kind of the same reason. Get draft picks out of Kendall and Catalanotto after the year.
Reasons for bringing in Nook Logan? Might as well have a CF with some success at the MLB level. Mitre is not needed nor wanted in Florida.
Reasons for bringing in Riske and resigning Borowski? Same as said, get draft picks after the year by letting them walk, also gives time for Delgado and Garcia to get good and ready.
Amezaga has been quite good, as has Helms, and Easley was a nice bat off the bench.
Our system, already stacked with pitching, can survive the losses of Petit, Vargas, Mitre, and Nolasco.
Trade PTBNL+$$ to BoSawx for Brandon Moss
Use the picks gained from Catalanotto, Kendall, Borowski, and Riske to even further stock the system.
Let Easley, Helms, and Amezaga walk. If draft picks can be had(doubtful) by offering arbitration, thats just gravy. Trade Nook for PTBNL.
LF-Kris Harvey or Gaby Sanchez
C-Brett Hayes or Torre Langley
Grant Psomas, Augustin Septimo, Matt Treanor, Eric Reed, Brandon Moss
Chris Resop, Randy Messenger, Harvey Garcia, Jesus Delgado, Taylor Tankersly, SU-Carlos Martinez,
