Figgins: Is his signing the key to this offsesason?

Figgins opens many doors for adding different players because of his position flexibility.

A plan of signing both Figgins and Dye opens up the possibility of a follow up trade involving Bradley or Uggla, or neither.

Option #1: What about no additional trade and leaving Sandoval at 3B, Garko at 1B? Figgins and Dye together would cost less than Holliday and address two areas of need.
Lineup: 2B-Figgins, SS-Renteria, 3B-Sandoval, LF-Dye, 1B-Garko, CF-Rowand, C-Posey, RF-Schierholtz
Rotation: Lincecum, Zito, Cain, Sanchez, Matinez/Pucetas
Estimated Total Salaries:99M

or

Option#2: Trade JSanchez for Uggla and let Figgins play RF.
A line up with Figgins at top and Sandoval Uggla, Dye and Garko batting 3,4,5,6 would be much improved from a year ago.
Lineup: RF-Figgins, SS-Renteria, 3B-Sandoval, 2b-Uggla, LF Dye 1B-Garko, CF-Rowand, C-Posey
Rotation: Lincecum, Zito, Cain, FA(6Mill), Martinez/Pucetas
Estimated Total Salaries: 111M

or

Option #3: Trade Rowand for Bradley trade let Figgins patrol CF.
Dye, Figgins and Bradley would be quite an improvement over Velez, Rowand and Winn in the outfield.
Lineup: CF-Figgins, RF-Bradley, 3B-Sandoval, LF- Dye, 1B-Garko, 2B-Uribe, SS- Renteria, C-Posey
Rotation: Lincecum, Zito, Cain, Sanchez, Martinez/Pucetas
Estimated Total Salaries: 99.5M

or

Option #4: go all out and completely change the offense from a year ago with:
Sign Figgins and Dye, trade for Uggla and trade for Bradley .
CF-Figgins, RF-Bradley, 3B-Sandoval, 2B-Uggla, LF-Dye, 1B-Garko, SS-Renteria, C-Posey.
Rotation: Lincecum, Zito, Cain, FA(6Mill), Martinez/Pucetas
Estimated Total Salaries: 108.5M
 
I would choose to go with option 3 because it drastically changes to lineup for the better and keeps the rotation in line to continue being a strong aspect of this team. Plus Rowand is outttta here! (In my best Kuiper impression)

My Salaries were from Cots and the players I had to guess on are as follows:
Lincecum-10M, Figgins-8.5M, Dye-9M, Uggla-9M, Wilson 4M, Garko-3M, JSanchez-2.5M, Uribe-4M FA SP-6M and all young guys not arbitration eligible at .5M.
