1) Dump a closer and find a solid bat. 3 closers is plenty. You need more bat bench depth. Mike Carp is cheap power and average batting cleanup in SEA. He whiffs a lot but he is a .280/20 HR guy that is batting cleanup in a MLB lineup. He has Ichiro and Ackley in front of him so there should be plenty of RBI opportunities.
Here are his minor league numbers:
2) Package Ryan Roberts and Jay Bruce for Ben Zobrist. Complete this 2-for-1 deal...start Zobrist at 2B...then add another FA bat. For this FA bat you should go with more speed than power...if Jennings, Bourgeois, Brantley or Altuve are available then those are guys you should consider. In fact, if Jennings is available you should drop a closer and add him over Carp.
3) You really need to find a way to have backups for all your positions.
