let's

assume that the Cubs have 25 million to play around with in payroll this offseason. Even though I am against it, our priorities first lay with Dempster and Wood. Wood will get 7 or 8 million, with options and incentives. Dempster will get 13 or 14, same deal. Although, I am sure Hendry will look at any option put forth his way in terms of trades, it's safe to say ramirez, lee, soriano are coming back.

 

The only  everyday players I think likely to be shopped are theriot and derosa. 

 

If we sign any big name free agent (without salary dumping),  it would be Adam Dunn. If done it would create the most potent line up in the modern era.

 

1. Theriot

2. Lee

3. Ramirez

4.Soriano

5. Dunn (RF, 1B)

6. Soto

7. Derosa (2B, RF)

8. Dome/Reed Johnson/Pie

9. Pitcher.

 

Could you imagine that lineup not succeeding?

 

In terms of free agent signing, it all depends on who the first to sign is, and for how much. If Teixiera goes first, it will be expensive for everyone. If we be aggressive, and get him first, it plays well into our hands.
