1. Lineup (continued)
Again, the Sox already have had internal discussion about pursuing free-agent-to-be Mark Teixeira, for whom the competition will be fierce. If the Red Sox prove serious about acquiring Teixeira -- and if they succeed -- they need to deal Youkilis, Ortiz or Lowell, the last of whom seems most likely given the combination of his skill set and age. If they fail to acquire Teixeira, the Sox may have to upgrade at another position, which brings an enormous number of trade possibilities (Matt Holliday? Garrett Atkins?) into the equation.
