Step 1. Re-sign Ortiz and Ross - no-brainers there.
Step 2. Trade Ellsbury to Texas for Holland - there is a rumor going around that the Rangers have offered this trade and Cherry is seriously considering it. I would go for it.
Step 3. Sign Haren and/or Peavy - WE NEED MORE PITCHING. Nuff said.
Step 4. Find a way to trade for Ike Davis - just the power we need. The Mets are apparently upset with his partying, and have Lucas Duda waiting in the wings. We can afford to trade Doubront in this trade because we already got Holland.
Step 5. Sign Hunter - the Angels apparently will give him a chance to explore the open market, and if we can get him on a 1 or 2 year deal worth like 8-10 mil, that's a no-brainer.
Step 6. Sign/trade for an RF for platooning - Jonny Gomes or Scott Hairston may work. Have an open competition for platooning (Nava, Kalish, Linares, even Bradley?).
Step 7. Fill out bullpen/bench - reclamation projects and older vets. Shutdown setup man prioritized. Trade Aceves ASAP. Has value. Clubhouse cancer.
1. Ciriaco/Iggy (Bogaerts midseason)
9. Gomes/Nava (Bradley midseason)
5. Morales/Lackey (Yes, I know...) - De La Rosa midseason
CL - Bailey
(Miller traded for Davis)
