Buy or Sell?

I'm going to be really curious to see if the Twins make any moves coming up on the deadline.  The Twins don't make a whole lot of big deals most years whether they're buyers or sellers. 

I would like to see them go ahead and move Livan either way.  I think Liriano will be back this year and if they decide to limit his innings and shut him down then one of Boof, Mulvey, Humber, Duensing could step in and I believe do an adequate job as our fifth starter.

The other four starters have been quite solid all season with a few hiccups here and there.  The bullpen looked rough after the Neshek injury but has really turned it around this past month so I don't see any reason to go after anyone there.  I just don't see the Twins making a  play for say a Bedard or Sabathia and if they couldn't get an Ace type there's really no reason in my eyes to get starting pitching help.

Offensively I don't know.  The  Twins are 8th in scoring in the MLB and 4th in the AL so offense wouldn't seem to be too big of a problem when you consider most of us would have been happy for a league average O.  A middle infielder would be on my Christmas in July list if anything was.  We have a nice flexibility with having Casilla in there who I believe would be capable at SS, that would allow us to look at 2B and SS available.  I guess there are no names that jump out at me but the Twins farm system isn't exactly super deep at middle infield positions so I wouldn't have a huge problem if the Twins made a trade for a solid younger guy out there and not just a rental player for this year.

 

p.s. Delmon Young has over an .800 OPS since he had his day off on May 29th (20 games).

Also, with Gomez seemingly being afraid to walk and his average slowly going down do you think it would be a good idea to maybe slide him down to 9 and move everyone else up a slot?  That way he can still be a sparkplug for the rest of the order when he does get on, just not in the first inning.
