Agreed that we need upgrades, but I don't think that we'll get them all this year. We may get someone at 3B or C, but I don't see us filling both. We can't expect to get all positions filled next off season. If someone fits into our future plans, we may have to burn a year of a contract to ensure they're here for 2015+. Other positions you will see competitions with guys we have in the minors. I wouldn't have minded exploring Ramirez to the Cards for Freese, as we have more options at SS than 3B for the future. Freese isn't a huge acquisition, but he's a lot better than our current options and frees up a lot more $$$ for the future.

I would have loved to dump Dunn, even if it meant covering $5 million for this year. I'd rather have the open $$$ and the open spot to get someone in the line-up.
