I would trade Dice-K and J.D. Drew for a better UTIL player and that should raise the talent within your lineup. Otherwise, your pitching is pretty good and does not need any major upgrade. Nice job! ;-D

I've got a 2 trade props out there involving Dice-K (one for Raul Ibanez and the other prop for Torii Hunter, straight up) and another that involves (Dice-K and Werth for Abreu).

I've also picked up Randy Winn and Carlos Gomez, how's my team looking now?

C: Sandoval
1: Conor Jackson
2: Phillips
SS: Young
3: Cabrera
OF: Hart, Werth, Winn
UTIL: Morneau
BN: Gomez, Drew, Yunel Escobar

my question: Should I drop JD Drew or Gomez to pick up Adam Lind?

I would go with JD Drew, he seems to not be able to play a full season

I like your staff and your infield hitters alot but some work needs to be done on the OF. Look at where you're strong and flip one of those for a good OF.

I'm not quite sure where/if Gomez will hit in the lineup, considering they have four Outfielders there.
Who loses out? (Span, Gomez, Cuddyer, and DYoung).....at least I know JD Drew will be playing while he's healthy.
Also, where in the batting order is Gomez gonna hit (leadoff? That's where they have Span projected for....)
I'm hoping that Gomez starts at leadoff where he can give me runs and SBs.

Lind is projected to hit 2nd.

Aren't Lind and Gomez the same type of players?

JD, yeah, I know....streaky and prone to injuries. I'm leaning towards dropping JD Drew for Lind, but wanted different types of players.....

I'm hoping that my trade proposals for Dice-K for one of {Abreu/Hunter/Ibanez} goes through, I think it will improve my Outfield. Season hasn't even started quite yet, so I'm sure I'll be able to swing some trades to make it better.

I'm hoping that I can keep my core of players intact (Cabrera,Morneau,Phillips,Hamels, Lackey, Nathan and Hart) while improving in the other areas.

I don't really like any of the OFs you are going after. I would defintely drop Drew for Lind. If it were me, I would hold Dice-K longer, and see how he does, then trade him/keep him depending on needs.

Lind is a .280-.300 hitting power hitter, Gomez is a .260 Speedster, who may be only a platoon or 4th outfielder on the Twins (depending on how Denard Span this season), plus you'll be lucky to get 10 hrs out of Gomez, Drew is in a decline with back injuries , and will probably lose at bats to Baldelli if he slumps or gets injured.
