Like most of you, the flurry of smaller WK moves on Monday whetted my appetite for the 'centerpiece deal' of this offseason. It's pretty clear that Wayne is not finished dealing. Unlike DanO, he seems to like teasing the fan base with statements like "Stay tuned" or "We're not done dealing" on a regular basis. So far, he's been true to his word.
My question for you all is this: Assuming the Gonzalez and Stanton are not all of it yet, what kind of MAJOR deal do you think Wayne will make this offseason?
Does he make a big free agent signing? A pitcher? A closer? An outfielder?
Does he make a big trade for one of the above?
Does he continue to make a cluster of smaller moves and ignore the big fish?
For my part, I think his acquisition of Gonzalez points to an impeding trade or free agent signing of a pitcher. Having a good defense up the middle is like buying an insurance policy for a top notch SP who gets ground balls. Frankly, I won't be surprised if we land a Lilly or a Meche, or a Padilla but I also won't be shocked if we are in the running for Zito or Schmidt. Really... I think we are going to be pleasantly surprised (at least until we realize we've overpaid)!
What say you?
