All of your starting hitting is either top-rate or enough upside to be top-rate. The outfield is especially good, with 4 top 15 players and at least 1 top 5. Justin Upton is more of a project for just this season. Votto and Tulo aren't top tier now, but could be close to the elites by the end of this season as both have the tools to excel.

The pitching is more questionable, as the questions are whether Greinke and Harden and Chris Young can stay in one piece, can Verlander bounce back from a horrible season, and how will Scherzer and Kershaw produce in a full season. I like Scherzer better than Kershaw for this season, actually. The bullpen is servicable. Overall that team could go places if the SPs fall into place.

You have a great offense. All of your hitters are very good. I love the fact that you have the Upton brothers, I was trying to do the same thing!

Your pitching needs help. You have four great outfielders. If one of them starts off hot then unload his ass for some great pitching.

What's the format and how many teams are in your league. Your offense is very nice but there are some questions on your staff. However how bad your Pitching is depends on how many teamsare in your league. The staff is not that terrible if it is a 12 team league.

I have with above, I really wanna know this team's format. I would probably ship Vladimir Guerrero and one of the young pitchers (maybe Kershaw?) to upgrade your pitching staff.

It's a decent team, your pitching staff is your question mark though. Your success depends on 'em and you might have to pull a trade to get an ace and get far if the pitchers in your team don't follow your expectations.

Your offense is great but it looks like you waited way to long to go after pitchers. I would try to trade a guy like soriano for a nice pitcher.
