SS- Reyes (call me an optimist)
RF- BJ Upton-get this guy!
Rotation- Johan, Dickster, Gee, Young (when ready), ? (Pelfrey, Duda, and Murphy go in a package for Upton/Shoppach)
Pen- Beato, Madson, Byrdak, ?, ?
Bench- Turner, Chavez, Nickeas, Tejada, Harris
I have a few questions, but the point here is the only "external" FAs signed are Madson and Endy. Madson will close and he will cost a few bucks. Endy will come cheap. I think it's essential to get a young talent like Upton, on whom the Rays seem to have soured. They'd jump all over the package of Duda/Murphy/Pelfrey, as all are young and relatively cheap, and two of them can DH. Pelfrey's time has come, shedding him is part of changing the culture.
The above is weak in the rotation, but given the financial limitations, what can we expect? I think this squad can be put together within the budget. Yes, Reyes will cost. This is NY, guys, man up.
Gotta go, my alarm clock is ringing.
