    If you could suggest 5 or fewer moves to Ben Ch. for 2012 what would they be?

    1. Do not resign Tek, Drew, Papi, Wake, McDonald or Pap
    2. Sign Cuddyer, Kubel and Nathan--they come from good training grounds they
       are all good players and all good team players
    3. Sign either DeMarlo, Maddox or Alomar,Jr. to manage
    4. Convince Carl C. to play RF--it's easier finding a left fielder and his speed
        would be better utilized
    5. If Pap leaves make Aceves the closer until he loses the job.

    4. Trade Kevin Youkilis before he requires a walker and cane.
    5. Take the "C" out of the clubhouse. Thanks for being a great backstop, the ride is over.

    1. Stock clubhouse with higher quality beer than Bud Light (c'mon these are multi-millionnaires, anyone heard of Sam Adams??)

    2. Make Youk and Jake room together on road.

    3. Re-sign Papi, but with a clause in his contract requiring him to reveal his stirrups to just under the knee.

    4. Sign Kevin Millar as "utility guy", with main function being to show these sad sacks how clubhouse fun is really done.

    5. Replace "sweet caroline" with ... well ... anything really

    Lets see, Drew is retired, you want to sign a designated hitter for 7/180, you want to build a trade package for a solid starter around a total injury wild-card.  And, yet, you take the time to call my joke post stupid?  Interesting.

    1. Trade Ellsbury career year (+ 1 or 2 from Lowrie and blocked prospects if Dodgers require it) for Kemp and extend Kemp long term

    2. Do not offer FA major league contracts to Senior Citizens Varisuk and Wastefield

    3. Offer Papelbon only 2 years and 26 to 31M. If market is more, early offer to Heath Bell one year and 12M or 2 years and 16M. 

    4. Offer Ortiz 1 year and 13.75M option 2 mutual @8M and team buyout 2.75M. No Market for Ortiz beyond 2 years and about 20M. There is no 3 year market. Ortiz will not go to Yankees for another 3 or 4M over 2 years. Do not offer Ortiz 2 year deal more than 20M.

    5. I provided a list of 5 or 6 names to offer early and sign 3 or 4 starting FA pitchers to MLB and minor league play for MLB contract contracts. Do not bid seriously on Oswalt or Wilson. FA market and trade market will not provide quality starting pitching at good annualized value.  

    (GM is more important than manager because of union autonomy. Most important hire is a manager or coach who is a genius pitching coach and development of young early MLB roster visit pitchers)

    I could live without Bedard....basically that is a fill in the name of a 5th Starter signing that wont cost alot of money and alot of years.

    1)  Sign Ellsbury to an extension

    2)  Rh bat to platoon with in RF with Reddick/Kalish loser (loser goes into a trade package).

    3)  Do not sign Wake or Tek (first time ever I have not supported bringing these guys back).

    4)  Obtain solid (an ace not needed) starting pitcher.

    5)  DH/3B.  Offer Papi 18-20mil for 2 years.  If he excepts (I think he would), then things stay status quo with him and Youk at 3rd.  If he declines, say good bye and put Youk full time at DH and find another 3b (Rameriz?).

    1) Do not sign Papi, Paps, or Tek.  Take those 5 picks and run. Lavarnway is BU C and partial DH.
    2) Sign a manager who follows the numbers, knows how to use his pitchers, and train his young guys.
    3) Sign a solid #3/4 starter from FA (Buerle?), and at least 3-4 5th, 6th+ starters for rotation, pen, and AAA.  A few of these can be reclaimation guys.
    4) Replace Paps in the pen with 2 guys.  1 can be a closer if Bard is not the answer (yet?)
    5) Sign/trade for a RF replacement.  This is the spot with the most options.  Possible trade fodder: reddick, kalish, lowrie, bowden, dubront, weiland, iglesis(not sold he can hit), lars, tarazwa, etc. 

    In summary, use the $ from paps, and papi to get younger and more flexible.  Trade your fringe guys for 1 more proven, solid guy, use the picks from the guys leaving to help rebuild the farm.  Spend where you have to, not because you waqnt to make a splash.
