I put this together pretty quickly without making comments for each spot, but I think it makes a good point. While this probably isn't as good as a plan as most of the AAOPs, it is realistic, and I think this roster could succeed. Most of all, I could see Omar making these moves:

Sign Molina 1/6(hopefully, although it will probably end up at 2/12).

Sign Delgado 1/5.

Trade Castillo while paying half and Sign Hudson 2/12.

Sign Bay ~4/64.

Sign Piniero 3/27 (maybe even less).

 

I think that I'm being pretty optimistic with the WARs for some players, so you can take off a couple wins, and we probably end up back at 88-91 like the '07 and '08. Maybe that will be enough for the playoffs. Plus, I really like this lineup, even if it does have Molina and Francoeur(with hopefully Pagan becoming the RF at some point, but for it to be realistic Frenchy has to be there) in it.

Reyes/Hudson/Wright/Beltran/Bay/Delgado/Molina/Francoeur/Pitcher

The 1-6 is actually really good.
