I think your going to need some help with arms down the stretch. I don't have much faith in Greinke even though his potential is sky high. If anything, get some pitching!

Your offensive is a bit weak. You don't have any power hitters. I mean I could be Bruce hitting 30HR easily, but don't count on Cano to hit your 29 again.

Pitching wise, You need relief, but you starters look decent.

I disagree about the power hitting... Nelson Cruz (when he's playing) will provide a HUGE bat, and even if Pedro Alvarez strikes out like he's swinging a sword, the guy will hit 25 minimum. Also, Travis Snider could fill in handily on off days and hit bombs, not to mention Utley at the utility spot when he's healthy again...

Please help!

Yeah, I don't have a problem with the hitting. I'd drop some of those bench bats though, and go in for some high-upside starting pitching.

Looks good, ....I'm okay with the hitting potential here. If saves are a category, you need to get moving on that. The upside starting pitchers are out there to be had. Better watch out for injury concerns with Utley and Greinke. Hope you have DL spots.
