How about bringing up about 12 players from the minors because half the current club belong either in the minors or out of baseball

How about a TRADE with TEXAS if they are interested enough in Acquiring #35 along with Loony tunes Pap’s and Frenchy PLUS 40 Million in Comcast bucks FOR Gallo and Alfaro

OR Sending #35 and A BUCKET of COMCAST CASH say 50 Million to the Yankees for G.Sanchez and A.Judge

POINT BEING Since Money is NOT the OBJECT and A QUALITY TEAM IS…Lets buy our way out of the cellar and BUY SOME TALENT via sending the few vets with value to clubs willing to PART with young talent and LOTS OF CASH as a BRIBE…
