Well, I like the future-oriented aspect of your team. Lots of quality youth. Furthermore, your staff is brutal.

I am a bit concerned about the power in your lineup. I don't see how winning HR, RBI, SLG each week with those guys. Loney hits for average, not power. Johnson isn't much of a threat. Gordon can mash, but he's very streaky. Nady can't continue at this pace. Upton has not shown much power, and Pence as well is not producing as expected.

Hence I would recommend shipping a hitter and a SP out for a power hitter to compliment your lineup. I like how you've got your eye on the future, but you need to win this year too. :-D
