This would be my choice. Those released include Daryl Thompson and Dallas Buck (injuries), Pedro Viola and Sean Watson (wildness), and a host of AAAA starting filler (Kip Wells, Justin Lehr, Sam LeCure, et al). DFAs are Taveras and perhaps Burton and Bray. (Depends on Rule V Draft, really.)
There is one spot open for a Rule V pick, as I think that's a great way to find a good, live arm for the pen now and perhaps the rotation later. Notice, too, the lack of a second catcher. I'd wait until after the Rule V to grab a second catcher, whether it be in a deal or as a free agent.
