    Your Offseason Plan in 3 Moves or Less

    The rules: You cannot add more than $20MM to the 2013 or 2014 payroll. Three moves or less. Try to keep it as realistic as possible.

    1. Trade Leake, Gregorius, Heisey and Corcino for Justin Upton
    2. Sign Grady Sizemore to a 1 year, $3MM contract
    3. Sign Ryan Madson (or Joakim Soria) to a 1 year, $6MM contract

    Opening Day Roster

    CF Sizemore/Stubbs platoon (keeps Sizemore healthy, keeps Stubbs vs LHP)
    2B Phillips
    1B Votto
    LF J.Upton
    RF Bruce
    3B Frazier
    C Mesoraco/Hanigan
    SS Cozart (pop at the bottom of the order, and batting ahead of the pitcher could help boost his OBP)

    SP Cueto
    SP Latos
    SP Bailey
    SP Arroyo
    SP Chapman/Cingrani (these two should be able to throw roughly 100-125 IP each, with the other one continuing to "stretch out" in the minors or in a long relief role)

    BP LeCure
    BP Hoover
    BP Arredondo/Simon/Cingrani?
    BP Masset
    SU Marshall
    CL Madson or Soria

    *In 2014, Hamilton takes over in CF/leadoff (or sooner if Sizemore can't stay healthy), and Marshall or Hoover takes over closing duties.
