First off, everyone likes to speculate what will happen next year, nobody really knows. So here is what I would like to see happen next year to our roster.
Then trade Griffey to a team that can afford his contract. Someone like the Chicago Cubs. I think that Griffey would accept a trade there and we may get a guy like Juan Pierre in return.
Then trade Adam Dunn to Houston for Brad Lidge and Luke Scott.
Then sign Ted Lilly to a 2 year contract, and resign Harang, Ross, EE, Lohse, Holladsworth, and Weathers to arbitration deals.
Trade Jason LaRue and Eric Milton to Milwaukee for Toma Ohka and Bill Hall.
That makes us look like this
CF Juan Pierre
SS Brandon Phillips
1B Scott Hatteberg
3B Edwin Encarnacion
2B Bill Hall
C David Ross
LF Luke Scott
RF Ryan Freel
P Aaron Harang
