what do I do to start the new year out right?
1. I revisit the Bedard trade, I offer Votto and Cueto and another prospect but not Bailey or Bruce. I stick to my guns because they have over priced him and they know it. I also demand a window to sign him to a LTC which I get done.
2. Now I sign Estrada to be my starting Catcher. I trade Ross for a prospect.
3. I sign Dunn to a LTC.
4. I sign Ensberg to play 1B and use Hatteburg as a PHer.
That would get us ready for the season.
Bailey or Volquez
Volquez if not SP
Coffey (on a short string)
Ensberg 1B (sure hate to lose Votto but worth the sacrifice)
I would give Freel a shot at 2B and consideer moving Philips to SS if Freel could beat out Gonzo. That would give us a true leadoff hitter! Hopper could spell all 3 OFs!
