So with that being said, here are some moves I would make if I were in Doug Melvin's position:
1. Trade Hart - I like Hart but given his contract, I think the Brewers would get more value from trading him then keeping him. One team I see as a potenital fit is the Angels. If they can't sign Greinke they will need a plan B. Hart is definitely an upgrade over Vernon Wells. Two players that interest me are hard throwing lefty Drew Taylor and Luis Jimenez. He looks like a future Aramis to me.
2. Starting Pitcher - None of the free agent starters interest me other than Greinke, so I would look the trade route. Two names that come to mind are Matt Garza and Jorge DelaRosa. I would be willing to give up a package centered around Thornburg for either pitcher. We definitely need a number two behind Gallardo. I would love to get Dickey or Shields but something tells me their asking price would be sky high.
3. Bullpen - Please Doug, sign J.P. Howell. He is underrated and is really good. Next, I would sign a backup closer, either Brian Wilson, Brett Myers, Matt Lindstrom, Matt Capps, etc.
4. Bench - Ty Wigginton and a left handed bat with power (Giambi, Thome, Ibanez)
Here is the hypothetical lineup and roster: Aoki, Weeks, Braun, Ramirez, Gamel, Gomez, LuCroy, Segura
Gallardo, Garza/DelaRosa, Fiers, Narveson, Peralta/Estrada/Rogers
Axford, Wilson/Myers/Capps, Henderson, Howell, F.DelosSantos/Kintzler/Estrada, Taylor/M.DelosSantos/Manzanillo, Badenhop
Maldonado, Bianchi, Wigginton, Schafer, Thome/Giambi/Ibanez
