I like your choices, but would instead make choo and ANY pitcher available for an OF upgrade. Whether you keep Gallardo or Bucholz for instance is virtually flipping a coin. Go for the upgrade and just see what the pitching gods provide you.
Please help with mine...

Who is the second Santana? I only see one listed.

These 5 you need to keep
Miguel Cabrera
Shin-Soo Choo
Evan Longoria
Dustin Pedroia
Hanley Ramírez

Last three come from this group
Carlos Santana
Mike Stanton
B.J. Upton
Clay Buchholz
Yovani Gallardo

I'd probably go with Santana and the 2 pitchers. But Upton is tempting.

Sorry I meant to type Santana(C) and Stanton(OF). I think that Stanton would be a better choice than Upton no? Stanton is young, raw power while B.J. is inconsistent. I thought about keeping both SPs, but that would mean cutting Stanton and I am not so sure I want to do that. What I would love to do is trade one of the SPs and Choo for a stud OF.

I like the first five and then i would keep Santana, Stanton and Gallardo. Hard to give up on Upton but he has been flirting with a breakout for a number of years. Starting to wonder if it will ever come.

What type of OF do you think I can get with moving Choo/Buchholz? I am also considering keeping Choo and offering Stanton/Buchholz to a team rebuilding for one of their studs. Thoughts.
