What is our real concern?

The future and who we currently have on the farm in various positions. Having money for FA's is great when and if you can find the right fit. How about also trading some of the guys who play all the same positions to fill a few positions we may really need long term?
IB, Nap, Carp, Overbay, Gomez - Really?
2B, Pede, Ciraico and nobody on the farm but Brock Holt?
3B, Middy, Cecchini, Bogy? Ciriaco etc.
SS, Drew, Ciriaco, Iggy, Marrero, Holt, Vinicio, Bogy? etc.
C, Salty, Ross, Lav, Swihart, Nap if he can? etc.
DH, Papi, Nap, Gomez, Lav?
Pitching, Besides Clay, Lester, Dempster and Lackey 9 of our top 20 prospects are pitchers in Barnes, De La Rosa, Renaudo, Webster, Wilson, Workman, Britton, Johnson, Owens and Webster take up. Barnes and De La Rosa are my best bets to make it soon and possibly have more success than guys like Doub, Miller, Morales, Taz etc. who we also have as trade bait.
OF, Gomes, Carp, Victorino, Sweeney, Ells, Nava, Kalish, Bradley, Brentz, De La Cruz, Jacobs and many others. Besides "possibly" Bradley in CF who might have the best chance to land in L or RF?
