Re: What if we stand still?
Standing pat on big trades may make sense for start of season. I'm afraid the asking price for Kazmir/Peavy/Bedard will be too steep.
But we do need a #5 starter. Can't start the season with Harang, Arroyo, Belisle, Bailey? and Shearn/Ramirez/Maloney??? May need to sign a Lieber or Lohse. We also have some spare parts that could be dealt for bullpen or a #5 starter (i.e. Freel, Hatteburg, Cantu, or Hopper).
We can see what mid-season brings whether there's a deal out there for Dunn or Griffey that makes sense to make room for Bruce.
