Anyway, would love to get Oswalt, but Derrek Lee is still tops on my list of must haves.

It may not be Lee or Pena who jumps first but maybe Kotchman or some other lesser name willing to sign a decent contract now rather than scrambling later.

Particularly if it was for one year. Like George though,I would be a little leary of Oswalt,unless it was for a very good price.

At least we can be hopeful that pitchers we have in the minors will morph into a major league caliber rotation. But bats, especially a big bopper…we have nothing in the pipeline that will compliment these young pitchers with offensive support. I witnessed the great world championship teams we had in 60, 71 and 79 and we had lumber. Watching the power and explosiveness of the teams in the last WS exemplifies how very far we are from being relevant in October.

Would probably get them up around .500.
