Per request....

- 98

[ Edited by 49erWill on Mar 22, 2011 at 12:15:09 ]
My goals for the offseason:

1. Resign Tex
2. Let Krod walk
3. Let GA walk (love what you did for our organization GA, but you're too expensive for what you're worth nowadays )
4. Pick up a middle reliever to replace Arredondo (so we can play Jose at closer)

those are the major ones......love to pick up a few role players too

Presenting...your 2009 free agent class. The players below are eligible for free agency after the 2008 season.

I've categorized them by position; the player's 2009 age is in parentheses. If I saw someone as a possibility at more than one position I put them at both. Feel free to email me at dierkes@gmail.com if anyone is missing or you find an error.

at a slashed.....very slashed salary......lol

in that case GA you deserve to have your jersey retired at the big A!!
We need to resign Tex, that's our major priority this offseason. We can afford to let Krod walk if he wants a deal anywhere over 4 years.

Matt Holliday is on the trading block, interesting. he would be a great replecement for GA if we can trade for him.
Moreno needs to raise beer prices and open up the pocket book for Tex and Manny. KRod will probably be in a Rays uni next season. Shields can handle the closer role.

Just get Manny out of the NL West.
