Aside from that I would definitely encourage the signing of a Moylan or Capps to fill Myers' hole.

I really do think we should bring in a lefty who's bat belongs in a ML line up. I would even settle for a Seth Smith/David DeJesus/Brandon Moss (not that I would want to buy high on Moss) type. Basically a better version of last year's signing of Fukudome.
I'd prefer a new lefty bat that can play almost full time, since it's near impossible to have all 9 regulars play the whole year - and when they do, like last season, they wear down by the end.

We already have a subpar hitter on the bench in Wise, not sure if we need two.
