I'd play Loney over Hardy and Pence over Kemp. I'd then trade Tulowitski for starting pitching help. Tulo is a bit overrated offensively. Hardy is no great shakes himself, but you need pitching and I think Tulo is your best trade chip.

Great offense. Drop Salty and pick up Towles

Pitching is pretty week. Lincecum may not win 10 games. Maine was horrible in the second half last year.

Towles is a possibility at C, or maybe an underrated guy like Ruiz, who's definitely available, and plays for a pretty good offensive team. Ruiz will likely get more ABs, I would think, which is the reason I mention him, although Towles has more potential.

I definitely think you're going to need more power to compete, especially with Ichiro in your lineup. Since I think Kemp is going to disappoint this year compared to how high everyone is on him (he's not a .300 hitter, Torre's been batting him low in the order, and he's fighting for playing time with Ethier and--gasp!--Pierre), so you might be able to get a guy like Swisher for him (which would certainly help you in the power department, and with Ichiro, you can take the hit to your BA--just talk up how Kemp is a 5-tool contributor and all that to a potential trade partner). At the worst, see if you can work out a package deal with a 30-HR hitter like Burrell, who everyone underrates (he's also in a walk year, I believe, if you buy into that).

I agree with the previous poster about starting Loney and Pence. I think he's right about Tulo being overrated, but be careful--Hardy's got an illness that they haven't yet diagnosed. It could be nothing, but you never know. Keep an eye on the news, at least.
