What do the A's need to compete for the division?

I was wondering what everyone thinks we need to have a shot at the division next year.  I was thinking a little more starting pitcing but I don't think there are any good starters left on the market.  I think that our bullpen will be ok are offense should be good if they stay healthy and that is a big IF with Chavez who can never stay healthy recently.  Adam Dunn would be a nice add to the team but I just cannot see that really happening.  The starting roataion is weak at best with Gallagher, Dallas braden, Gio Gonzalez, and Eveland . I guess Gallagher and Eveland have decent arms so maybe they are serviceable I know Duke will be good but will he stay healthy?
