I would:

1. Trade Soriano for anything I could get.
2. Exact same for Zambrano.
3. I would look to trade Byrd and Marmol
4. In FA I would pursue Prince Fielder, CJ Wilson, Brandon Phillips (IF HE OPTS OUT OF HIS CONTRACT), Johnny Damon (.260/14/61/.361) but only for the right price, and Roy Oswalt ( IF HE OPTS OUT)
5. I would bring back Aramis, if the team doesn't look competitive coming into spring training then I would attempt to trade him for rebuilding pieces
6. If I was unable to sign Fielder I would put Soto or Colvin at 1st which opens up roster spots for Castillo and for Campana/Lahair
7. Also Pena would be gone at the end of the season
Lineup:

1. Castro SS
2. Jackson/Campana CF
3. Phillips/Barney/Lemahieu 2B
4. Fielder/Soto/Colvin/LaHair 1B
5. Ramirez/DeWitt/Lemahieu/LaHair* 3B
6. Soto/Castillo C
7. Damon/ LaHair LF
8. Colvin RF

Pitching Rotation
1. Oswalt
2. Wilson
3. Dempster
4. Garza
5. Wells/McNutt/Cashner

SU: Wood

Id rather have Geo at first and allow castillo to catch. LaHair would be a solid choice for 1st base, but id rather him in the outfied, maybe even try him out at 3rd in place of A-Ram.

In no way should Brandon Phillips be allowed on this team. He another hot-headed, me-me-me type player, and he only looks better this year because N. Morgan and Z have monopolized crazy this year. He would cause more distractions and eventually be run out of town. NO THANK YOU

Geo at 1B is a bad idea, since even his best career numbers would be disappointing at 1B.

Yes BUT Phillips is also one if the best 2B in baseball and he would really help out on both sides of the ball. The risk is worth the reward

Agreed. If your not gonna have Geo behind the plate, you might as well trade him for whatever you can get.
Please don't feed the psychos.

Catcher is a pretty greuling position, Geo's numbers could improve at 1st simply because he wouldnt be taking as much wear and tear on his body
