2. Hoard Free Agent Bullpen Arms
The bullpen was a pretty big weakness in 2015. Koji Uehara is almost as old as I am and coming off an injury, I wouldn’t give him the closer’s role back on a regular basis. I would hand it to Darren O’Day. How about three years at $20 million for O’Day?
Then, go out and get Joakim Soria, Ryan Madson, and Oliver Perez. Surely, the bullpen will still need more help at that point, so rotating some kids from the farm through the ‘pen to get a look might be an unconventional way to find people to fill out the ‘pen.
