    • I don't see as much work ahead as you seem to think. Belt--really could be huge stud in making. Baez--short time till his arrival. Gyorko--my favorite young player. Gattis--stud this year. Don't do anything drastic with your offense. you will be OK this year and even better next year. Your pitching is where I am blown away.Biddle, Wacha, Salazar,Lincecum, Griffin, Greinke, Fister and Cole incredible potential for Ks this year and beyond. What kind of draft are you looking at this year---2-3 rounds? If you could get the first or second pick in that draft and pickup someone like Jose Abreu or Alexander Guerrero that would help you significantly. Don't know all that you did rebuilding last year(would like to see your moves), but from where I sit it looks like you did a great job.

    • That's rough. If you truly are trying to rebuild rather than compete now, you need to try to trade anyone with name recognition (and therefore possibly inflated value). Trade Bautista / Lincecum to get building pieces at either 1B or 3B (Hosmer, Machado, Freeman, etc.) Look for some prospects that have a good shot at a starting job and should make an impact this year, regardless of their position (Jose Abreu, Nick Castellanos, etc.). If they flop, no big deal - you're rebuilding. If they boom, you're ahead of the game.
