The answers were widespread, ranging from re-signing Chase Utley to promoting Willie Calhoun to acquiring Jonathan Villar from Milwaukee. Here’s a look at the responses.

Logan Forsythe b/c he won't cost us JDL, cheap for 2 years, .800 OPS, 4 Win player last 2 yrs & he's versatile which we love

I like Forsythe. I feel he doesn't have Dozier's ceiling, but he also doesn't have Dozier's potential floor. LF seems steady.

if we're going cheap I like Ceaser Hernandez, nice Lil switch hitter who could lead off and swipe some bases.

Brandon Phillips as his deal is short-term(no trade clause)& he would serve as a great mentor to Calhoun (if he's not moved).

Ian Kinsler because I think he can be a more consistent hitter then Dozier and more long term success.

willie is too young in the mean time I'd trade for kinsler,Forsythe,or Dozier and at the end of those two years put willie in

I think the bigger focus should be the 8th inning and landing a guy like Holland. Keep prospects and see if Kike can step up.

Fill the position from within the organization, Utley and maybe someone from AAA. Don't deplete our farm system for Brian D
