I agree. Problem is it isn't going to be cheap.
Option 1 - Damon, He's making over $8 million this year and will probably want $10 million for 3 years.
Option 2 - Furcal, He's making $5.6 this year and should be around Renteria money.
Option 3 - Haiston or whoever else Henry can dig up
Furcal seems like the best option to me. He's a good leadoff hitter, good defense, good speed, and some power. With a little luck he won't be much more if any than Nomar's getting paid this year.
I expect Burnitz's option to be picked up. Dempster did a good job and shouldn't be that expensive.
