I agree on Castillo. I think he could be had for pretty cheap. Bring him in, move BP to SS and we've got ourselves a pretty good infield.
Bringing in Dave Roberts or Mike Cameron wouldn't be too bad either. Either or them can share time in center with Farney, which would give us the oppertunity to move Junior to RF (I doubt he would move out of CF, but it's worth a dream).
As for starting pitching, I think Kriv should make a move for Lilly/Ohka/Meche. Sure, getting a Zito or Schmidt would be nice, but there is no chance in hell that Zito is coming here and giving a 3+ year deal to a pitcher on the decline like Schmidt isn't the greatest idea...
Guys like Bradford/Fultz/Riske are some good options for the bullpen as well...
