Morneau gets traded during the offseason for a starting pitching prospect knocking on the major league door.
Parmelee can continue his success in AAA throughout the rest of season.
not if that success doesn't translate into a strong September call-up.
Willingham shifts his bat to the DH role more often following the All-Star break.
Arcia/Hicks advance to AAA and still produce at the same level and deserve a call-up.
also assuming a shift to primarily first base for Mauer.
The rotation consists of: Diamond, Pavano, Walters, Gibson, Hendriks.
Gibson can continue his successful rehab this season AND if Hendriks can finally find his footing against major league hitters.
Dump Pavano if a "cheap, impact" starting pitcher can be acquired in free agency
That's all i've got for now. There are so many more ifs and buts to be addressed but i think this covers the major three that have been floating around in my head for the past month or so. Anybody have any of their own to add?
