The Unoffical Official Off Season Open Thread

With the A's eliminated, it falls upon us, the fans, to immidietly pluck apart the team and look to next year. We must look to 2007 to crush the pain of-well, whatever. We got past the ALDS, and thats all that matters right now.

In order to win the AL West for the second year in a row, we will have to readjust the lineup, the pitching staff, the bullpen, and make the nessisary corrections or upgrades. After all, the Angels will not stand pat. They have the supperior rotation, and the wad of cash.

What can be done to improve the team?
