You need pitching more than hitting. If you can try to get Pujols for some of that other stuff you have for position players, then do it. But don't trade Tim Lincecum, the only pitcher you really have.
Brandon Inge (C,3B,OF)
Geovany Soto (C)
Lance Berkman (1B)
Adam Dunn (1B,OF)
Brandon Phillips (2B)
Jose Reyes (SS) DL
Miguel Cabrera (1B,3B)
Hanley Ram?rez (SS)
Torii Hunter (OF)
Carlos Lee (OF)
Curtis Granderson (OF)
Jayson Werth (OF)
Shane Victorino (OF)
David Ortiz (OF)
Tim Lincecum (SP)
Daisuke Matsuzaka (SP)
Heath Bell (RP)
Joba Chamberlain (SP,RP)
Brandon Webb (SP) DL

What is the slotting arrangement? Is it C,1B,2B,3B,SS,OF,OF,OF,UTIL, SP, SP, RP, RP, P, P, P?
You have zero pitching depth. And you're forcing yourself to start Dice-K who has been tearing up your ERA and WHIP. You won't come close in Saves, becuase you have only ONE closer.
How you managed to get Hanley, Miguel Cabrera, Phillips, Reyes, and Berkmen all on the same team is beyond me.
You either had Ibanez/Hunter/Grienke and decided to sell hgih for injured players, or its BS.
If you are able to hold 4-5 Round One players, i would suspect you're in a league of 6 or less. Then why the hell is Soto still on your roster.
Bench Dice-K, Drop Soto, Trade Hanram. Pick up Zobrist. Sit on Reyes. Start Victorino, Hunter (if his ribs get better), Lee. Util Granderson. Bench Ortiz and Werth (Unless extremely favorable match ups). Trade for Halladay (buy low for injury) or some other top/middle tier pitcher. Yovani Gallardo would also do nicely. Go to the waiver wire and pick up some RP. I would suspect closers such as Sherrill will be sitting there.
I'm sure its very tempting to land Pujols.... however it doesn't seem to me that its your offensive lineup that is holding you back. It looks like you need some quality pitchers and I don't think Tommy Boy is gonna be enough to replace Lincecum. All things being equal, I would take Pujols but not in your situation.
