Who would even we be surprised to hear them in on. I'm guessing it's not a starting pitcher but other than that most everyone is a possibility.
Manny - A surprise due to $$$'s if for no other reasons. But there would be many reasons this would be a surprise.
Dunn - A surprise to re-visit someone we dealt away and never showed much inclination to re-sign.
Burrell - A surprise because he represents all the reasons we dealt a better younger version away in the 1st place besides being a RH bat.
Tex - A surprise because he just doesn't fit due to his demands for a really long term (and expensive) contract, and the presence of both Votto and Alonso. However if you moved Votto to left and later dealt Alonso this could make alot of sense.
K-Rod - A true shocker however if you are gonna pay a ton of money for a closer why shouldn't he be one of the best arms in baseball. I doubt this happens which again is why it would be surprising.
My guess is Mark Texiera makes the most sense but would still be quite surprising.
