Trade Jenks to the Cubs and call the Theo comp deal settled.
Trade Scutaro, Youkilis, Oscar Tejada, and Atchison (out of options) to the Mets for David Wright: 12:$15M, 13:$16M club option ($1M buyout)
(Save ~$3M in '12) --Mets save $3M in 2013.
Trade DMac, Middlebrooks, Anderson, and Bowden (out of options) for Gavin Floyd (12:$7M, 13:$9.5M club option)
Overall we save about $2M, giving us about $7-9M to spend and still stay below the tax limit. Sign Cody Ross ($7M/2) and Maholm ($9M/2).
