We could field a pretty good team with all the guys we're going to stop talking about...

Do you really think we can downgrade from Tejada to Ensberg or Burrell and even stand a chance?
If we played in the NL West where nobody hits, sure. But not in the AL, not at all.

You aren't paying attention to what gesch or I are saying...Improve the defense...Improve the bullpen and the depth...GEt another top of the rotation starter.
Get enough offensive help where we can still score 820-850 runs.
You can do all of this without Tejada.

To win 90 games while scoring 825 you'd have to allow about 750, or about 150 fewer than this year.
Basically, to get to 90 wins without Tejada you have to come up with 275 runs somewhere, pitching, defense, and offense.

Nope. You said we should ask for Lackey & Wood. Lackey is probably rated ahead of Bedard based on back to back good seasons and proven durability. You could make a case that it's pretty close. Markakis & Wood are also close, IMO. Wood was/is the more highly rated prospect while Markakis has proven himself at the ML level. I'd call Lackey/Wood for Tejada virtually the same as asking for Bedard/Markakis. I don't think anyone here would go for that and I don't think there's anyway the Angels would go for the former. I think some of the demands for Tejada for the most part, are unreasonable to expect.

Hernandez is likely to be similar next year to this past year and i will say Mora is in the 750 OPS range, or about the same as this year but he could be better.
You felt this team would score 800 runs this year. The team i am talking about, with Cruz, Millar and a Valentin, a much better back up catcher would score more than this year's team.
Plus, the defense and pitching should be much better.
I still am not sure that it is enough but it is a better team for the future and doesn't have any bad long term contracts that could bog us down.
It still goes back to DCab, Loewen and maybe Penn.
