Roster Moves

Who would you rather have...

Marte
Barfield
Michaels

or

Kouzmanoff
Crisp
B. Phillips
A. Brown

I feel like the moves made have been recovery type moves since losing Phillips.  Personally, I am not the biggest fan of Phillips but we had to trade Kouzmanoff because we got Marte and we had to trade him for a 2B because we lost Phillips.

Also, I am not a huge fan of Westbrook, especially after last night.  I do think the price they kept Westbrook for is great but I have a question for you all.  Wouldnt you have rathered the Indians spend the 11M on CC towards a 15M or 16M a year deal.  Then they would have CC (for only about 5 million more...he wont get 18, 19, 20), Sowers, Miller, Lee (already locked up), and Carmona?  I would take that over the same with Westbrook and no CC.  

And now, if they do retain CC and Westbrook, doesnt it look like Carmona or Lee is out the door?  There arent room for 6 starters.  I think Lee and Carmona have more upside than Westbrook so losing them would hurt in the long run.

What does everyone think about the current roster and pitching staff?  I just bring up these questions because wouldnt the obvious have been to keep Phillips over Vazquez, have Kouzmanoff as the future 3B (or maybe even Peralta), and have a staff with CC, Lee, and the young guys (ESPECIALLY WITH LEE ALREADY LOCKED UP!!!)?  Maybe we are trying to do too much here...
