I'll be honest I think its pretty weak all around. Your lineup is just empty. You don't have one bonified player in your lineup. And why do you have 4 prospects on your bench? The guy most likely to get any big league time this year is McCutchen, and he's nothing special. The rest of those guys will probably stay in the minors this year to gain some experience. I hope Im not sounding rude here, but I'm curious how you ended up with the offense you have. Your pitchers are better than your hitters, but even there you have little depth. I like Billingsley and Lowe, and Harang is off to a good start but I dont think its enough to stay competitive. It seems to me you overvauled young prospects waaaaaay to much.

The issue is you don't have alot of depth to make trades. I doubt anyone would take any of your bench players, you may end up having to drop them. Most of your starters on offense are fringe/bench players anyway so its not like you have a stud player to trade for a few nice players back. It also depends on the depth of your league, amount of teams, and waiver wire players available etc etc. Your deepest position is 3B but your not gonna get much back for any of those guys alone. Try packaging one of them with a starter for a decent offensive piece. You gotta look hard and make alot of trades to turn it around.
