OF: De Aza, Kubel, Cuddyer, Ludwick, Soriano, C. Young
SP: Cahill, Parker, J. Santana, Harrison, Buchholz, Lohse, Jamie Garcia

I like a few of these choices. Garrett Jones and De Aza are my first choices but could see choosing Cabrera for extra steals; I also think S Drew is going to be good in Bos.

I think you need another OF here because of Hart; or Kendrick because who knows what Weeks will do

You could use some speed and some back up for Weeks.

Yeah Weeks is risky. But all teams have filled their 2b, SS and MI slots so I doubt there is a burning desire to chase after the likes of Kendrick or Ackley with 6 rounds to go. I could be wrong though. And it is not like a scrub 2b can't be found on the wire usually. E. Cabrera is a one trick pony but only SS elig and not a bad option to back up Jeter though. I picked up Crisp for steals and to backup Hart for the first month or two. I figure there is more value in grabbing another OF bat or maybe a SP now based on the talent available.

I like De Aza to beef up your OF or Kendrick b/c to cover Weeks (health or prolonged slump) or that MI spot in case Jeter isn't as healthy as we all hope. Both those spots could need a backup and Kendrick would over them.
