They cannot afford to give Werth the 5 year contract that he wants @$20/mil/yr.
Who they get to hit righty, to share an OF spot w Brown is yet unknown. A star RFer seems beyond their reach///though RA could stretch things out to get one. Not enough salary comes off the books to allow a pursuit of a good free agent who'd want a several year contract.
A journeyman OFer seems more likely plus a dip into the realm of injury-recovering people.
Lopes is gone. Longtime people in the organization may be shaken up...as is happening with the choice of a manager at Lehigh Valley.
There may have been some assumptions about entering last season with a world series very possible in OCT '10. There is likely to be some other unexpected moves over the winter...which started w Lopes. Too self-satisfied? A shaking-up could apply to the '11 season. More chances taken with guys from the farm system...Brown, Worley,DeFratus,Bastardo,Mathi eson, etc.
