Re: 3 Moves Krivsky Should Make
2 words-AH NO!
No way do I trade Dunn in the offseason, his value is very low right now and we would be basically giving him away, wait till the deadline, packages are always better when teams are in the playoff hunt. As far as your offseason acquistions, I like Perez as the platoon guy, but no way do I sign Suppan for 10 million. I think in reality we will sign one more guy in the offseason, and we will be active in the trade market so here is my 3 moves to make, fire away if ou don't like.
1)Sign Shea Hillenbrand to play 1st base- this relegates Hatteberg to a platoon/bench player where he strengthens the overall bench. Hillenbrand then bats 5-6 in the order and drives in @80 RBI'S. We then let Votto have a full year in AAA, and he replaces Hatteberg in 08.
2)Trade Ryan Freel and Rheal Cormier to the Rangers- the Rangers are in need of bullpen help as well as OF depth, and these guys are pretty cheap players to fill those spots. We in exchange get CJ Wilson lefty reliever and prospect Jason Botts OF/1b.
3)Sign a veteran OF, who is coming off of a down year in hopes that he can regain some of his former self and then be able to flip him for prospects come the July trade deadline, cause we are going to need 4 outfielders cause we cant expect Griffey to play more than 120 games. Guys that fit this role are:
(Preston Wilson, Trot Nixon, and yes Rick Ankiel)
