I would pay the rest of Harang's 2010 salary if someone would take on the buyout and flip us a reliever or a prospect or two. Not sure even that is possible, but there might be someone out there that isn't in the running for the top-tier arms, that might still see Aaron as an upgrade to the backend of their rotation.
Harang and his salary for a decent bullpen arm and his buy-out would make me very happy. I do want a steady veteran right-handed power bullpen arm before the deadline at the very least.
I'm still on the fence about Lee. I know his ability, but he's not re-signing so I wouldn't go more than two from among Alonso, Wood and Mesoraco. I think I'd lean more toward Haren or Grienke and a longer period of control.
If Bailey weren't on the DL, I'd probably draw the line at Alonzo, Heisey, Bailey and Maloney for Lee.
