Saved for Saturday: Build the All-Hindsight Team

Yesterday, I used the advantage of hindsight to look at what might have happened if the Brewers had signed CC Sabathia over the offseason. Today, let's take it one step further.

Imagine, for a moment, that you woke up this morning and discovered it's November 1, 2008, and you're Doug Melvin. Once you get over the initial shock of having a mustache and being magnetically attracted to former Rangers, you realize that you can use the benefit of hindsight to rebuild the 2009 Brewers into a World Series contender.

So, here's your challenge. I've included a poll with some suggestions, but what would you, as Doug Melvin, do differently as you work to construct the 2009 Brewers? Can you operate within the Brewers' current budget and build a team to contend?
