Being that 2013 should solely be used to evaluate what we have, and make definitive decisions on who is or is not going to be a part of this team, I would have no problem going with an OF of:

Hairston - Duda platoon in LF
Kirk in CF (DD waiting in the wings if Kirk falters)
Juan Lagares in RF

One guy no one seems to talk about: Delmon Young. He doesn't seem to be getting much interest.

Isn't Young a bad clubhouse guy with attitude problems? That is NOT the type of guy we need....

Definitely has had issues in the past, not sure if there are any current ones but i'd stay away from him as well. He isn't a great defensive player.

I think they should definitely be looking into Bourjos. Swisher could actually be an interesting fit, but his ego has priced him out. He's not worth what he's asking. Looking around for young OFers who would have to be traded for, but would be interesting, I did come across a couple. Michael Taylor from Oakland is pretty well blocked out for a position, and he's got some pop, young righty. Tony Campana from Chicago, another one blocked. Speedy CFer could be a leadoff type guy.

The I guess you have no problem with a mediocre outfield. Lagares, really?

didnt delmon young get reportedly in a fist fight with a jewish new yorker over antisemetic remarks. i am sure jeff,fred and saul are ready to bestow millions on him.

Obviously I want to improve, but I honestly don't expect to fill the whole team in one off season.

We are rebuilding. I have no problem seeing what those guys have before we discard them.
