I still believe Loewen, DCab and Penn are going to be above average major league starting pitching with Loewen and DCab maybe developing into the truly special pitcher category. I just don't thik there is any chance that they'll all develop quick enough to legitimately contend in 2007. Obviously I hope I'll be proven wrong but I don't think I will be. If I am right, wouldn't it be better to plug 2 or 3 high potential prospects in the lineup in 2008 to get some experience and be ready to make a major push in 2007? Add some new life, energy and excitement to a team that is somewhat listless. Let's play it like it's 1989 all over again.

And what BB and many others fail to realize is that you can contend without Tejada.

All of these guys show some promise and would be cheap
Sign CLee $13-15 mil for LF or Trade for Ensberg and put Mora in LF
Have to add a big bat and OBP
Trade for Burrell for DH, if he will not come sign Sheffield/Thomas or platton Marrero/Gibbons
Again, a power bat with OBP
Sign Mussina if 2@20 will get him, If we get Mussina, sign one of Lilly/Meche/Padilla/Armas Jr/Estes w/o Mussina, sign 2.
Use extra pitching after FA signings to get Burrell, Ensberg, and Huber/Shealy/Kotchman/Carter/Duncan
Depending on whether Benson and Gibbons are part of trades, that would be adding between $30-40 mil in payroll. And we would having something like:
dh Burrell/ Gibbons/Marrero Sheffield/Thomas
DH Burrell/ Gibbons/Marrero Sheffield/Thomas

So, your solution is to sign a bunch of 35+ year old players, mediocre/average starters and a hitter in Carlos Lee who we will be lucky to get a 820 OPS out of in 3 years, who can't play the field and is always out of shape?
Yea, i will pass.

Tejada won't be traded, but I think as early as next year we will wish we had traded him in that Ervin Santana package.
I see Santana being a top of the rotation starter within two years. Hopefully it's not for the Yanks in an ARod deal.

Look at the Tigers now they don't have anyone on there roster that's as good as Tejada. Yet they are looking like the team to beat.
Because of there pitching. They have great young pitching. Santana would instantly upgrade our rotation.
