Nice team, you'll be fine on speed. Lee+Wright+Utley+Wilkerson gives you enough to beat teams that are tanking SB, you won't be losing the category every week.
My only concern with the team is your closers. I'm not sold on Gonzalez given his injury issue last year and his lack of control, plus I think Marte is going to get worse again this year and Mike might end up as the lefty specialist with Torres closing. If that happens and Benitez gets hurt you could have problems. Not that I'd trade for a closer, just make sure you keep your eye on that FA list for potential pickups.
Get a new catcher, with ten teams theres a good chance Bengie Molina is on the WW, hook yourself up with him, he's on the Jays this year and will be on a stacked team. I'd also find a Yankee fan in your league and get a lot for Cano, they still think he's good. I love your rotation, including Haren and Kazmir. May want to explore getting a third closer other than Gonzalez.
NO speed at all. Also, your pitching staff is by no means a lock on any category. You have Peavy and Felix, but Felix is young and unpredictable. For a 10 team league, your staff is average at best. While you should win 4 hitting categories each week, you arent a lock to win two pitching categories any given week....because of this I give you a B+.
