Humor me to win in 2015

Ok, so I have been dead set against trading any of Bryant/Baez/Soler/Almora as I see them as a rare core of ppositional talent. However, I have a proposal of multiple multiple transactions that could lead to a legitimate shot in 2015.

First, sign Tanaka. I don't care if Theo has to offer him a free back rub during his visit, whatever it takes.

Second, trade Baez/Pierce Johnson/Soler to TB for David Price.

Third, sign Matt Garza to a 4 year/$50M deal.

Fourth, trade C. Villanueva/C.J. Edwards/Vogelbach to COL for C. Gonzalez.

2015 rotation of:

D. Price

M. Tanaka

T. Wood

J. Samardzija

M. Garza

2015 Bullpen

P. Strop

J. Russell

A. Viscaino

C. Rusin

J. Veras (Closer)

2015 Lineup

A. Almora (CF)

S. Castro (SS)

A. Rizzo (1B)

C. Gonzalez (LF)

K. Bryant (RF)

M. Olt (3B)

A. Alcantara (2B)

W. Castillo (C)

A possible variation if Olt is indeed a bust would be to shift Bryant to 3rd and J. Lake takes over in RF.

I think that rotation has a true Ace, a strong #2, two strong #3s, a strong #4 and is balanced.

You have some thump in the lineup 3-6. It's not a murderers row but with that rotation and bullpen, you may not need it. What are your thoughts?
