What I Would Do With the Roster

Hey guys I’m   new to this site, so be gentle on my first post.

 

I know last year was a total drag with the first 100 loss season in franchise history, but I think that we have a lot of the pieces to be contenders right away. No joke. Here’s how we get back to the playoffs:

 

  1. Trade Brenly for Dan Pasqua -- Brenly had a good season, but he's over 30 now and he's one of the few players with any trade value. Pasqua doesn't have a place in New York, so they'd likely part with him.

  2. End the David Green experiment. Sorry, but it's just not going to work. The Giants need a big bat until Will Clark is ready in a few years. Solution: Mike Aldrete, Jim Gott, and Mark Grant for Bob Horner.

  3. Trade Dave LaPoint, Chris Brown, Jose Uribe, Phil Ouellette, Randy Bockus, and Dan Gladden to Baltimore for  Cal Ripken and Floyd Rayford. The Orioles need pitching, and Uribe helps make up for the loss of Ripken. Obviously, we have to part with Chris Brown, who is probably the closest thing this team has to a cornerstone of the franchise, but Rayford helps minimize the loss.

  4. Start Ron Roenicke. See if his OBP is for real.

  5. Trade Chili Davis and Vida Blue for Ron Oester and Gary Redus

 

My lineup:

 

CF - Ron Roenicke

2B - Ron Oester

1B - Bob Horner

SS - Cal Ripken

3B - Floyd Rayford

LF - Dan Pasqua

RF - Gary Redus

C - Alex Trevino

 

SP - Kelly Downs

SP - Mike Krukow

SP - Atlee Hammaker

SP - Roger Mason

SP - Bill Laskey

 

RP - Scott Garrelts

RP - Mark Davis

RP - Greg Minton

RP - Jeff Robinson

RP - Mike Jeffcoat
