Let's throw the budget out the window and win this offseason. It's simple:
We sign Arod, AJones, Vizquel and Bonds. Then we find someone to trade with that will give us a 1b who plays good D and is average.
And if the 1b is good enough he could be moved up. Maybe bat him second and drop vizquel down.
This lineup plus our SPs, Zito, Timmy, Cain, Lowry, whoever and an improving bullpen and we have a very solid team.
We don't have to rebuild, we just have to spend a lot of money. It's not my money, I'll spend it however I want.
I'll live in my fantasy world, thank you very much!
