I absolutely cannot agree with CF or closer. I'd go Street-Putz-Gagne as 2-3-4, at least until Putz shows that last season wasn't a one shot deal and Gagne shows he still knows how to pitch (without steroids?). Ichiro is lightyears ahead of Kenny Lofton and, I may be a homer (see username) but Kotsay's better than Matthews, especially if you take defense into consideration.

I'm also not so sure about Blalock at 4 behind Figgins...
