uhhhh...ignore this last guy.
You have a GREAT 1,2,3 combination for pitching. Perez, IMO, sucks badly. Weaver could end up with respectable numbers, but you need some help at the 4 and 5 slot for your pitchers. Wagner/Benitez/Graves will get you through the year pretty decently for saves. Graves will start the year closing but could end up losing his job to Ryan Wagner depending on his performance.
Now...over to your offense. Looks like you went for the All-Sleeper team bro!
Not that it's bad necessarily, but it could be anywhere from awful to great...or anywhere in between. It looks like you may have made some bad decisions in the middle rounds. Let me tell you what's good. Huff, Sweeney, Crawford, Teixeira, Blalock are all good/great. Gibbons is serviceable, and Ensberg could end up being huge. Durham is weak, Reyes is a sleeper but who knows what he will really do.
Overall, I think you went for too many risky guys and possibly could have gotten them too early because you should have some more dependable performers.
I think you will have a solid team but you may want to try trading Wagner, for instance, for a decent 2B like Kent or something. Wagner has been going in the 2nd or early 3rd round this year it seems like and people always overvalue closers if they don't have one. There are probably some other closers out there on the waivers that play for crappy teams but will still get you decent saves to keep you at least in the middle of the pack.
You need to have one more sure stud on offense, IMO, and boost your starting rotation with some more surefire guys if possible in the #4 and 5 slots. Your top three couldn't really get much better...so the other two don't have to be studs, but just guys that you don't have to worry about having a 5+ ERA at the end of the year. I'm thinking maybe guys like Washburn may be available for free or cheap...he had an off year but usually is quite dependable to have an ERA under 4...and he is pitching on a much improved Anaheim team.
Hope this helps.
