Wait, thats different so your league goes by team pitching? So Im guessing you have all the Cubs pitchers?
I guess Im unfamiliar with your league settings, how many teams are there and is it a roto or head to head?
For the most part I like your team but I would suggest somehow trading Pierre for a power hitter because he is going to see a decrease in playing time, and you can get his clone Michael Bourn in FA assuming hes there.
Keep Hermida, if he stays healthy he can put up some real nice offensive numbers.
Travis Buck is deadweight I would drop him immediately for Garko or Melky. Id also get rid of Casey Blake and add either Garko or Melky. Try to get both since they have good upside.
If I were you I would drop Hudson and pick up Iwamura. He will have 2B and 3B eligibility and is better hitter and can nab you some bases plus is on a solid hitting team.
