Re: Off-season Lookout
I'm not going any longer than 2 years with Ludwick. He was great this year, but there's no chance I give him 3/22. I was thinking something like 2/14 or 2/16 seems fair.
I imagine you'll see Madson and Broxton brought back. Broxton as an insurance policy as Madson comes back from Tommy John. Chapman will be a starter for the first 3/4 months before they move him back to the pen to limit his innings. Leake starts the year in AAA. They might bring in another mariginal starter they can stash in AAA or in the bullpen too.
I doubt you'll see a major chance in CF because Hamilton will probably be up in September. They may try to go after a DeJesus type player. Hopefully they bring in a bench guy or two. With Rolen being gone and Frazier starting, the bench is even more depleted than it was all year.
Really, this is all I can see coming in from outside the organziation:
Maybe a CFer on a short deal
