Well, assuming the payroll is the same, Maggs's contract doesn't do us much does it? That goes towards Garcia and Contreras. And Valentin's will go to whatever raises, be it through options or whatever, there are. So not as much to work with as you'd think. I don't think Loaiza made much, and the only big league salary we lost in the Garcia deal was Olivo's, which wasn't much either.
I would love to get a pitcher along the lines of Pavano, Perez, Radke, or Lowe this offseason. While Hairston would be nice, I'm perfectly fine with Willie, and I think there are more pressing needs than 2B. The only way that would work is if you stuck Willie in Center, Rowand in Right, and kept Lee in left. That would take care of the outfield problem.
Another bullpen arm should be necessary.
The best shortstop in the draft will be Justin Upton, B.J. Upton's younger brother, but he should be long gone before we could take a crack at him.
J.D. Drew's agent is Boras, so that's not gonna happen.
The most pressing need, in my opinion, is another proven starter. A rotation like this would be pretty good:
