^^ this offseason should be nice. $25 million comes off the books thanks to Maggs, Guillen, and Penny. BUT JV gets a raise, but after all that we should have $15-18 million to spend if Illitch keeps the payroll the same, but he was on record this weekend saying he will do all it takes even if that means raising the payroll. I assume the starting pitching is set. JV, Fister ($500K bargain!!), Porcello, Max, and maybe Turner?
We need to take care of Valverde. so the needs this offseason are closer, 3rd, and 2nd. secondary to that, backup catcher. no way can avila can do what he did the year.
oh and i went 1-3 this weekend. thanks to Denard.
