Use the freed up money to sign a free agent right handed first baseman with some serious pop. Thus next year lineup looks like this assuming Bruce arrives.(big if) Not to mention, theres the chance of getting some other prospects via trade for a bench or possible starting role depending on the return.

Did you ever think they are so bad against leftys because of the players that get the starts?
Freel? Hopper? Ross? Castro? They just dont hit.
