Maybe it didn't end up well, but it still has some good pieces to build around. I would go with Teixiera, Santana, Bruce, Lester and Weaver. If you are worried about Bruce's average or only want one pitcher, add Butler as a steady guy.

I agree with the above poster:

Jay Bruce
Santana
Teix
Weaver
Lester

If you don't want to keep 2 pitchers, I would try and trade Lester (or Lester + etheir) for a bat.

But, IMO, having 2 Inning eaters to anchor your rotation is nice.

Teixeira, Bruce, Santana, Lester, Weaver. Bit more pitching than you probably want, but you can pick up hitting

it might have been bad last year but you are just keeping the right # of players for the decent options you have. Forget last, these will do fine for '12
