In response to moonslav59's comment:
For those who said this year's "bridge signings" were justified as buying tgime to better FA classes ahaead; they are not looking so good anymore. More will extend before now and then as well.
i was optimistic about those upcoming FA years knowing that studs like verlander and kershaw would not last until then.
Wainwright came out of the blue and is the only loss ATM
1) An ace.
2) A RH'd power hitter (a top 5 three or four slot hitter in MLB).
I'm not sure either will be there next winter.
These are the closest (many are not my choices or not quite what we really need) to what we need as of right now:
1B: K Morales, J Morneau, Napoli, Morse
OF: C Beltran, Choo, Ellsbury, Granderson, C Hart
SP: Burnett, C Carpenter, G Floyd, Garza, Halladay, Haren, P Hughes, Kuroda, Lincecum, Wandy R., E Santana, Vogelsong
