With the big time acquisition of Cordero to bolster the BP, what about filling out the rest of the roster with these guys? No there not superstars, but could provide enough depth to give us a shot at the playoffs, so here's my 2cents.
1) Mark Loretta-he's a RH bat, can play all 4 IF positions and most importantly provides leadership in the clubhouse, as well as spelling Hatte/Votto at 1st base...he could be had for the same $$$ as the A.Boone signing 1yr @1million.
2)Brett Tomko-he's a RHSP/RHRP-he could be our 5th/6th starter giving us depth in the rotation as well as long reliever out of the BP. face it its a long year, and he could throw 120-150 innings easily, reducing the IP of the other guys.
3)Matt Clement-guy coming off shoulder surgery, former #3 in the rotation could be had for an incentive laden contract.
4)LaTroy Hawkins-RHRP who can be that 6-8 inning guy and truly give us a dominant BP, something that this team has sorely lacked, if given the lead after 6 with (Cordero,Burton,Weathers,Hawkins) we would be hard pressed to give up leads.
