    Complete this sentence: All we need now is ...

    ... another Arthur Rhodes type pen pitcher. Right now we're looking pretty damn solid if not for the pen. Middle relievers are pretty cheap in the trade market as well, its just finding the right ones (cough not Bill Majewski cough) to get the job done. A healthy Dickerson to relieve Stubbs would be good as well.

    An ace pitcher that can match up with other teams #1's in the playoffs assuming we get there.

    to remain healthy.

    or

    a true, proven #1 starter

    or

    to have volquez come back with added velocity and dominate the opposition

    All we need now is another relief pitcher who's pitching better than anyone in the Majors? That person doesn't exist, since Rhodes is already the best this season. We'll have to settle for someone who isn't as good as Rhodes.

    But, they may already be on the roster. Time and experience may prove this out (or not). Anyway, no need to do anything in the next 30 days, for sure. Must wait to see how these relievers respond in June first.

    Cueto and Leake are emerging, but I still believe we need a true #1 starter if we make the postseason.

    Other than that, I have no complaints about the offense, and feel we need to bolster the bullpen. The same things I've been saying for 2 weeks now.

    Sure would be nice if this missing piece came from within. But, Burton from the little I've come across, seems to be a bit mysterious. Bray, has had stretches of being absolutely "the one", but he has never stayed healthy. It would be nice, if sometime soon he gets there. Before he went down a lot of pundits were referring to him as potentially one of the best LH relievers in the NL.

    a Power LF bat off the bench. Nix isnt good enough in my mind.

    agreed. Gomes has seperated his self so far from Nix, I would try to get rid of him.

    I mean I can handle Nix but I'd like to get a guy who can do more than just swing really hard. Nix is defendable to a point but guys like Danny Dorn probably are going to be better fits. Hopefully he gets off the DL soon and pushes his way onto the roster.
