That's a lot of money to spend for mediocre talent. Koji might come cheap but we would have to give a serious prospect for Street and the farm system is already short of talent. Even after all of that, the team you suggested is worth about 85 wins and ties up a lot of payroll in bad contracts for the next three years or so.
The most successful teams are built from young talent. Let's build the farm system by spending to the limit in the Rule 4 (amateur) draft and international signings. If the team feels that the fans need a big FA splash this winter then go after Buehrle or Cespedes. Both of those players are in the affordable range and can be part of a playoff team.
