Rest of Offseason

Ok so I know that getting Upton would be a great move, but I doubt that Sandy will pull the trigger to get it done in the end. So, This is what I would do if I was Sandy for the rest of 2013:

-Sign Scott Hairston 2 years/$10 million

-Sign Brian Wilson 1 year/$3 million with incentives

-Sign Carl Pavano 1 year/$3.5 million

-Sign Ryan Rayburn to a minor league deal with an invite to spring training

-Sign one of Chad Durbin or Jon Rauch

If we do this, we'd look something like this on opening day:

C- Buck( with TDA waiting in the wings)

1B- Ike Davis

2B- Murph

3B- David

SS- Tejada

LF- Duda

CF- Kirk

RF- Hairston

Bench- Baxter, Recker, Cowgill, Turner, Valdespin

SP

Santana

Harvey

Niese

Gee

Pavano

(With Zack Wheeler coming up shortly or to replace Santana when/if he is hurt or traded)

Bullpen

Wilson

Francisco

Parnell

Edgin

Rauch

Laffey/Carson/Mejia/Familia

I would go to war with that team in 2013. We're not expected to compete, and this team would give us a lot of flexibility in the coming years when we will be ready to compete. We would have the financial flexibility to add 2 OF in the 2014 free agent class, and then we could really go for a playoff spot in 2014
