All the Reyes talk has me excited, I didn't think he would be a great idea but there is no denying he would correct a lot of the things people complained about on here throughout the year. I like Bruce Chen as a Left Handed SP pickup. He'd be cheap, tried and tested in the AL(Central), solid numbers the last 2 years for a #4/5 starter and available. Turner could start the year at AAA if the main 4 from this year are all back, and be sure when he comes up, he is up for good. We need a backup catcher for Avila. I don't think Martinez will be catching again, and I don't mind. If Inge would agree to catch 30/40 games over the year, I could certainly live with it. If he doesn't, its hard to justify his roster spot, as much as I would like too. Santos could certainly catch, but his bat would more than likely be hopeless. Ryan Doumit anyone? Could catch, play some 1B to spell Miggy and be a 6th OF to boot. His bat would certainly be a lot more useful than Santos' too. For the bullpen, Joel Peralta. Were set at the back end, Coke will be back in the pen and hopefully Al Al will return to what he was - he'll certainly be given the chance to do so. I was happy when we were linked with Peralta at the trade deadline, so would like it if we went for him now. He'd give another solid RHP in the pen and would hopefully mean Perry could be in AAA or possible trade bait. And lastly yeah, Reyes. Lead off hitter with excellent speed and defense, sign me up. Jhonny could move over to 3B and the left side of the infield would all of a sudden have 2 very good bats and gloves. Verlander - God Fister - RHP Scherzer - RHP Porcello - RHP Chen - LHP Valverde - 9th Benoit - 8th Coke - LHP Peralta - RHP Al Al - RHP Schlereth - LHP Reyes - SS Boesch - OF Cabrera - 1B Martinez - DH Avila - C Peralta - 3B Young - OF Santiago - 2B Jackson - CF Dirks - OF Doumit - C/1B/OF Inge - 3B Raburn - 2B/OF Kelly - Everywhere My only issue was trying to justify a roster spot for Inge if he is only going to play 3B. If we sign Reyes, Peralta moves across and Kelly is there to back him up. I could have another bullpen arm without having to consider him. Signed for $5 million though, I think he will probably be around. Obviously, at this time of year, its all a load of 'What Ifs?' but heck, its fun trying to work it out! I need something to do over the Winter bar compare Tigers schedule and Expedia flight searches.
