A Crazy Idea to Raise a Question

Ok, so our offense is pretty bad. I'm hearing that we've got 15 mil to spend over like 3-5 guys, and it seems like I'm hearing a ton of people saying to spread it over the guys. Buy a 1 WAR 3rd baseman, buy a 1 WAR catcher, buy a 1 WAR 4th starting pitcher, buy a 1 War lf/dh split guy, buy a 1 WAR long reliever. I disagree. I think thats a formula for more failure. I think we need to invest. My crazy idea below is just to show my point that I think we need to get somebody good instead of a bunch of somebodies who arent as much. 

There used to be a crazy idea here, but I removed it because the player I suggested purchasing has a club option for next year.

But this post wasn't about my idea anyways. What I wanted to point out was what one good player adds to the line up. If we added a few average level guys instead of one really good guy I dont know if itd look as good as our line-up as it stands with one weak player replaced by one very strong player. What do you think? Do we spend big on a key player? Or has the Figgins contract convinced you not to bank your off season on one guy? See poll below:
