I had the same starting 9 (right now) but like your idea of Benson over Nunez, and adding Arcia to the bench.  However, given the question you posed, I say the answer is no.  I believe there is one more move in which players are traded for pitching, though it could come from prospects being traded instead of regulars.  I also flip your lineup and put Buxton on top (probably not from day one) followed by Mauer, Dozier, Sano, Park, Plouffe, Rosario, Murphy, and Escobar (or Escobar then Murphy).  I do like that lineup - starting to feel like the FO enjoys writing it down over and over again as well.....

How about trading Plouffe for a top bullpen arm, let Sano play his natural and more valuable position of 3B, and sign a solid RH hitting OF to play with Arcia and Rosario in the corners until Kepler is ready?

 

Benson will almost undoubtedly be in AAA to begin the season.

How about trading plouffe for a pen arm and also signing a free agent pen arm?

I like Dozer behind Mauer too. Hope they do that.

bench- Suzuki, Santana, Nunez, Free Agent with some pop...* the idea of Ploof replacing Nunez would make me happy!

Benson over Nunez is crazy talk.

 

The guy is an excellent hitting utility IF. 

 

And I lot the idea of batting Sano third. If Buck is in the lineup (and can hit and walk) Mauer has to move down.
