(1) Figgins ain't cutting it at 3rd defensively
(2) The need one more Veteran bat ( I love GA but he ain't the GA of old)
Get Joe Randa and platoon him with Dallas McPherson at 3rd. Randa is a solid glove and hits lefties well and the Pirates would love to dump that vet salary with Sanchez taking his spot anyway.
Move figgy to center, bench Erstad
Trade Ervin Santana or one your hot prospects on the farm for either Carl Crawford or Lee... Crawford preferably.

His deal he signed was so low compared to what he could get in just a few more years in the FA market, I'll bet there's a backdoor exit he can exercise.
If I were a player of his talent, I wouldn't want to waste my prime years playing for a perrenial loser. No matter what the contract says, an unhappy player can make for a difficult clubhouse. The D'Rays have a lot of young kids, so they can use the Crawford $ on signing them to long term contracts. Also, maybe the D'Ray owner overestimated his team's future and now he realizes the D'Rays aren't going to be good for the duration of Crawford's current contract, so shop him now while you can get some good young talent.
