    Interesting players will be available next week

    Hitters
    1B - Ryan Shealy
    1B - Carlos Pena
    1B - Hee Seop Choi
    2B/SS - Brandon Phillips
    INF - Tony Graffanino
    2B - Todd Walker
    2B/LF - Scott Hairston
    OF - Jay Payton
    OF - Luis Terrero
    OF - Luis Matos
    OF - Dustan Mohr
    C - Koyie Hill

    Pitchers
    John Thomson
    Juan Cruz
    Todd Wellemeyer
    Kirk Saarloos

    How much better would you feel about this team if they could pick up Shealy & Thomson or Cruz?

    I want Brandon Phillips too, but I know I'm already asking for too much.

    I would love to get Shealy, Hairston, Phillips, Cruz, Thomson off that list.

    I don't think the Braves are going to DFA or cut Thomson, they've just made him available for trade, and they want a bullpen arm in return.

    BTW, I'd be interested in Shealy, Pena, or Choi, Thomson, and Cruz.

    I think a player like Juan Cruz is exactly what our current bullpen needs.

    Sorry. I should have made this more clear. I don't think most of these guys are going to be available except via trade.

    Give me Shealy(my #1 choice) or Choi at 1B, Cruz for the bullpen, and Phillips as the second baseman.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Brandon Phillips stinks. He's an overhyped "prospect" who's failed in every chance Cleveland has given him. We've already got 37 second basemen, we don't need this guy thrown into the mix at Louisville with them.

    Pena and Phillips would be good. I'm also a fan of Luis Matos as a backup outfielder/defensive replacement for Griffey.

    He has youth on his side, not old vetness

    I wonder if Juan Cruz could be an effective closer?

    Great thought, I was just getting ready to post it when I saw you had said the same thing. I think this guy has an electrifying arm. I WANT EM!

    I have to wonder why he is about to be on his fourth team in four years. Maybe it's because his BB/K dropped from 30/70 in 2004 to 22/34 last year.

    My gut tells me he could be lights out in short relief though.
