You have two choices.


Would you rather:


A.) Keep basically the nucleus of your pitching staff (virtually everyone) and Luis Castillo.




B.) Keep Pudge, get rid of Castillo and put in Hooper, lose both of your closers, and keep Castro on the bench for another 3 years.


I chose A.

I say we re-sign Pudge, sign Vlad and let go Castillo and sign a cheap 2B like Todd Walker.

Pudge and Vladi? is Loria gonna go into crack dealing? what about Lowell? and the rotation? i dont know if Loria has that much "special" money, but who knows?

First of all, Todd Walker had a good year, and won't exactly be "cheap" compared to Luis Castillo, and 2nd, there is no chance on God's green earth that any team in baseball not named the Yankees has enough money to sign Pudge and Vlad.
