Billy Hamilton isn't going to be ready this season unless something amazing happens. He may not even be ready next season.
I'd think Fowler would command more than Leake and 3 relievers, but who knows. I also don't know if they have enough money for a FA slugger. That said, I don't know, which means maybe they come up with some cash to push payroll into the 90-95 range.
