2 stud starting pitchers and some confidence and we are a playoff type team.

Will Glass spend the money for a quality starter?
Frenchy's replacement is in AAA. An adequate glove in 2B is cheap, and we've got enough in-house to figure out center field.

Almost 100% of our FA money this off-season needs to be spent on starting pitchers, and we ought to easily be able to afford at least an $80MM payroll next season. I presume (not sure) that raises will eat up a few million, so we ought to have at least a spare 15MM to play with. If we can spend some of that money on extensions for Moose or Hosmer great, but if that doesn't happen, 15 million on 2 players should be able to buy a lot.
