Early thoughts for '11

Keep in mind that the salaries are expectations and not exact numbers. However, even if I am way off, we would still have some $$$ to play with. I like the R/L/R/L/R rotation, the 'pen, the catchers, the infield, the outfield and possibility to spend some more $$$ if needed. Let me know what you think. A vet 1B with gold glove defense would be nice :)
