So here is my first official post to this site that means anything. I am going to talk about what I would like to see happen with this team in order to get us to a position where we can dominate. Bear in mind. This wish list is purely what I would do if I owned the team and had pockets like a certain owner in NY.
Step 1: Hope and Pray that Sammy Sosa elects to search for greener pastures and free up some money for us.
Step 2: Use money freed up to sign Vlad!!! (This is a must if step 1 is going to be successful)
Step 3: Resign the following members from the 2003 club: Tom Goodwin, Kenny Lofton. I know that it seems like we should sign more than this, but trust me, other people are coming.
Step 4: Sign these players: Louis Castillo, Miguel Tejada, Vlad, Kelvin Escobar, Ugueth Urbina
My lineup would then look like this:
1. Castillo - 2b
2. Patterson - CF
3. Guerrero - RF
4. Tejada - SS
5. Ramirez - 3b
6. Alou - LF
7. Simon/Choi - 1b
8. Miller - C (This is the only real weakness)
9. Pitcher Slot
