In Which I Remember Another Option
10. Sign Placido Polanco. Polanco has played third base before, including parts of last season, and the guy is an excellent defender everywhere in the infield. I'm not certain that he'd be willing to sign somewhere where he'd have to be a third baseman, and he would cost a first round draft pick. However, the market for him looks pretty bare right now outside of St. Louis, so he might come at a reasonable price. Realistically, he wouldn't be a huge upgrade over Alex Cora, and his offense is concentrated in batting average. Nonetheless, he's worth considering.
