Rays must add a bat...

This isn't a reactionary post based on the past few games.  The Rays are average to slightly above average when it comes to scoring runs.  The only reason for the team's success this season has been the outstanding starting pitching, the unbelievable work of the pen, and the incredible defense.  Offensively, the Rays clearly need improvement.

The only positions that can be addressed are RF and DH.  We all know who is lurking out there at DH, so I won't even get into that "wet dream".  But what impact bad can be had without severely depleting the farm system?

Matt Holiday will be to expensive, and given his splits, the Rays really shouldnt be considering him unless they feel like they arent giving up much in value.

Jason Bay would be a substantial upgrade, but how much will he cost in prospects?

Nady would be an upgrade as well, but how much of an upgrade, and at what cost?

Who else is out there other then the Casey Blake rumors?

After carefully evaluating this team and its potential TO WIN THE FREAKING WORLD SERIES THIS DAMN SEASON, how can you not want to add Bonds?  Would you rather give up some pieces to the future to land Bay?

How about both?  You put Bay in right and Bonds at DH, and the Rays probably would have won there last 3 games instead of losing.  That's all pure speculation, but not far from the truth.

Is this lineup good enough now to go deep into the post season? Maybe, but there are certainly some holes.
