Hey guys. I waz bored so I decided to make my 2012 Rays.
Catcher: Since our catchers last yr weren't so good, I wud try trading for Texas' Taylor Teagarden. They seem to have run out of chances for him so he should b easy to get.
1st Base: I figured they cud reach a deal with the Reds for Shields for Alonso maybe a few players thrown in to make something like this James Shields and J.P. Howell for Yonder Alonso, Jose Arredondo and maybe Yasmani Grandal to fill it out.
DH: I definitely want the Rays to sign Jonny Gomes he is a right handed power bat who cud possibly compliment Matt Joyce against lefties. If there is enough money you could sign either Posada or Damon to add some roster depth.
Since these are the main changes I wud make aside from some small bench or bullpen additions here's how the roster would look:
Bench: Jaso/Chirnos, Jonny Gomes, Fuld/Guyer, Brignac/Johnson
The team's already pretty much in place but I think they cud keep up with the Yankees and Red Sox with these additions with their already beast pitching staff.
