First get rid of pearce he is useless. I wanna to get rid of cedeno and start wood i like his power from SS. He was hitting better while getting consistent playing time and isn't a miserable defender. You also save a few mil by getting rid of cedeno. D'arnaud looks like a Quad A player.
We should try to re-sign snyder for 2-3.5 mil and see if he accepts. Let pedro start at third and walker start at second. Let Jones and Hague platoon at first and let lee go(He's not worth 6-8 mil). Start Cutch, Tabata, and Presley in the outfield and get rid of ludwick. Do not protect paul.
Non tender maholm and try to dump corriea and his salary on a team. Get ohlie back for 2 mil and start him along with lincon, morton, karstens, and mcdonald. Don't trade Hannrahan There are a lot of good free agent closers so his value would be low. Have him close, meek be the eighth ining guy and have watson, wilson, D Cutch, Resop and leroux or moskos fill out the pen.
The bench should be made up of Harrison, D'arnaud(to see if he can play in the MLB), Hernandez, Jones/ Hague, and the fort.
This gives us a very cheap yet decent team(we can use that money to lock up our core and we can protect more young players from the rule V draft).
Also I wanna give props to the front office for dumping Diaz(didnt think we would be able to do that).
