2011 Crazy (?) Master Plan

The consensus is that the Mets will not be big players in the free agent market & there is no market for the players they are willing to trade. Several moves MIGHT be feasible, though: Beltran plus cash to the Dodgers for Kemp or to the Cardinals for Rasmus. Neither one is a favorite of their respective current manager. F-Mart to the Nationals for Flores (underperforming prospect for same). Or sign free agent Buck. Either way, Thole could use a righty hitting platoon partner (Buck hits lefties very well). Use the money that would go towards re-signing Takahashi & Feliciano and sign Downs & Francisco. Francisco is a risky signing but not ridiculously expensive (probably cheaper than Escobar with more upside). Downs if better than either of the current lefties & has not expressed any desire to become a starting pitcher as has Takahashi. Bite the bullet & release Castillo. Sign Uribe to either play 2nd & allow Tejada time to mature at AAA or if Tejada is major league ready he can back up at all infield positions. Sign at least 2 second tier free agent pitchers. With Santana out until who knows when,some combination of Westbrook, Kuroda, Penny, or Bonderman could fill out the rotation. Gee or Mejia could figure into the mix also.
