You Have $5 Million: How Do You Spend It?

Just an exercise to see how you'd spend money that we know is available.  How would you fill out the roster?

In the grand scheme of things, $5 million is a lot of money.  As in, if the average household income in Minneapolis is still around $50,000, it's 100-years-to-make-that-much-money kind of money.  But in baseball, $5 million isn't a lot of ching.

In can, however, still buy the Twins an upgrade or two.

Listed below are is a list of remaining free agents, along with an arbitrary salary for 2010.  Would you add any of these options?  Just remember that, no matter what you add, you can't exceed the $5 million limit.
