I realize it's alot of money to spend but my ideal 2012 would be as follows:

LINEUP
1. Brett Jackson - CF
2. Starlin Castro - SS
3. Prince Fielder - 1B
4. Marlin Bryd - LF
5. Wellington Castillo - C
6. Yoenis Cespedes
7. Junior Lake/ DJ Lemehiu/Jeff Baker - 3B
8. DJ Lemehiu/Ryan Flarehty/Darwin Barney - 2B

STARTING ROTATION
1. Matt Garza
2. Gio Gonzalez
3. Yu Darvish
4. Ryan Dempster
5. Carlos Zambrano

BENCH
1. Jeff Baker
2. Reed Johnson
3. Bryan LaHair
4. Steve Clevenger/ Backup FA C
5. Ryan Flarehty
6. DJ Lemehiu/Darwin Barney

BULLPEN
1. Sean Marshall
2. Jeff Smardjia
3. Kerry Wood
4. Andrew Casner
5. James Russel
6. Chris Carpenter/Jeff B.

Although expensive I think the FA would be the right age and ability to build a team around, As for fielder you can always trade him to an american league team when his defense starts to slide or when Vogolbach is ready. Would also like to see Byrd and Zambrano traded at the deadline if possible when their trade value Is higher. The pitching would make it an interesting year while the young lineup matured through the year. Just a thought.

I like it though I do not think Soriano will be gone. The only thing I would question is Darvish and Gonzalez. There is still no word on Darvish getting posted. I would also say unless the A's want lower level prospects I do not think we have the prospects to get him. But they might as they are building for their new stadium whenever that is. So if we could that would be great and then replace Darvish with Buerhle and you contend in the central.

Where's Soto and Marmol? Did we trade them for prospects?

Yes, Marmol and Soto traded for prospects. Also trade Randy Wells if you can get anything half way decent for him.

I don't mean to dump on you, MC2, but folks who think that DeRosa has a place on any ML roster these days haven't looked at his numbers since 2008. He's been a terrible, injured mess, and will be lucky to receive a non-roster invite to Spring Training this year.

Not dumping on me, it's my dream team. Invite DeRosa if he's healthy and can show it at ST maybe we get him on the cheap like Reed Johnson. Veteran leadership and a versatile player. Looking at the FA list and all the stats may not hurt to go cheap and let some of these kids get their time in. I don't think pitching is to far off right now just need more solid depth and somebody that handles pitchers better. Biggest thing is get these guys to play small ball 1st, I got so sick of leaving men in scoring position all season long... ...

1B-Pena- 2yr/under 25 mill. 3rd yr mutual opt.
2B-Kelly Johnson- 2yr/12-14 mill, 3rd yr mutual opt.

IF-Marquez Smith or DJ LaMahieu
C-Clevenger or Castillo

1-Garza
2-Dempster
3-Edwin Jackson or Carlos Zambrano-depends on what they want to do with Big Z.

This is what I would like to see happen this off-season.
Sign Fielder, Cespedes, trade Marmol and Soto for high level prospects flip them for Gio Gonzalez. I would love to see them get Darvish but with other moves not sure they have enough money for him. If they did that would be on hell of a pitching staff.

Darvish
Gio
Garza
Big Z
Dempster
