Totals
*approximate salary
30.9


           
That leaves us with 15 million dollars to spend on 5 players.  After a finalized Bartlett deal that leaves us with 10 million for 4 players.
Here are my suggestions:                                                                                                                                                                               Sign Rick Ankiel to a minor league deal or call up Baxter and that leaves you with a little less than 9 million. This is the shocker of today, sign Jorge Cantu and Derek Lee for 2 and 5 million dollar deals. Cantu would play second base. Next trade Jeremy Hefner and Nick Hundley for Geovany Soto. Last off sign sign Henry Blanco and you end up with a 40 to 50 million dollar payroll.
The line-up is great:
CF Cam Maybin
SS Jason Bartlett
1B Derek Lee
LF Ryan Ludwick
C   Geo Soto
2B Jorge Cantu (I know!)
RF Will Venable/ Kyle Blanks
3B Chase Headley

SP1 Mat Latos

SP3 Tim Stauffer
SP4 Aaron Harang
SP5 Cory Luebke
