If I could dream up the moves for the rest of the year, they'd be:

- Trade Foulke for a highly rated prospect (other teams will think he's just in a slump).

- Acquire a reliever in the off-season that can strike people out
- Call up Almonte and see if the can be the closer of the future.
- Let Crede showcase what he can do.
- Get rid of Frank after the year, he's destroying the middle of the line-up
- Let Biddle and possibly Ginter see if they can start
- Dont blow out Marte's arm, or anyone elses.
- Let Valentin bat 2nd (likely spot next year).
Here's the line-up I'd like to see next year:
cf- someone like Randy Winn
ss- Valentin
rf- Ordonez
1b- Konerko
lf- Lee
dh- Borchard/Liefer
3b- Crede
c- Johnson/Paul
2b- Harris

By dumping the veterans and their contracts, should be plenty of money to sign Konerko to a long-term deal and acquire a new centerfielder

You will never see Borchard as a DH,the guy is a natural athlete that can play all three outfield positions.

Biddle will probably be a starter after the break,he has shown no signs of strain.

Why are you so interested in seeing Liefer get playing time? He's awful.

I wish you hadn't told me that. Now, I'll be up all night, afraid for my life. :)

you say that like it's a bad thing daver. :D:

Women might like him for the reason he's good looking and nice. That's what we need, nice guys instead of Sam-Me's.

Maybe its just me, but I'd rather have 9 *******s who win than 9 good-looking, nice guys that suck like Josh Paul.
