Welcome to the Offseason
We're taking this outside...

The Yankees won the World Series last night with a 7-3 victory, winning their 27th world championship. As much as I was rooting for the Phillies, the Phillies should have won this series but didn't show up to play at all. They couldnt score any runs, or they did but couldnt hold on leads late in the game. No matter how much money the Yankees spent, or how dominant they were, the Phillies rolled over, IMO.
Anyways, its November, and baseball is finally finished. Now comes the offseason. Of course its a little early to begin this thread because players havent filed for free agency yet, but what kind of moves would you want to see your team make in the offseason?
On the home front for me-
The Twins are supposed to expand their payroll with the new stadium opening next year. For me, I'd like to see the team lock up Mauer and Morneau to contract extensions, and then go out and get a arm or two for their bullpen, that was a major weakness last year.
Outdoor baseball in 2010!

What I'm hearing from the Yankee front.
They will not tender Wang a contract, but will look to get him back on a minor league deal.
They will watch what goes on with Holliday and Bay, could come in and raise the price for the Red Sox and Mets.
They will add a front line starter, Felix, Halladay and to a lesser extent Lackey.
Seems like Joba might be in the bullpen and Hughes in the roto. Hughes reminds me of a John Lackey type, so I hope they look at Halladay a little more than signing Lackey so we get different looks.
I've heard a few different things on the Matsui/Damon front, who knows whats going on with that.
I think Pettitte will stay and that seems to be the feeling, with 2010 being Pettitte's last year(IMO)
Damon $13 mill
Matsui $13 mill
Nady $6.5 mill
Pettitte $10 mill
Wang $5 mill
Hairston $2 mill
Molina $2 mill
Hinske(Pit paid most of his salary)
Also Gaudin and Bruney, both making about $2 mill will likely be non tendered.
That's 51.5 million or 55.5 million if Gaudin and Bruney are gone. Also Giambi's $5 million, Pavano's $2 million and Marte's 250K buy outs will be off the books.
Both Swisher and Cano will see contract bumps of $2 mill each. Melky is in for an arbi bump of most likely $2 mill. Pettitte will be back for about $10. I hope the Yankees can resign Nady and Wang back for less money.
