Looks like you're a little shallow in starting pitching. Don't know the stats or layout of the league, but your team can definitely hit. If I were you, I'd try trading some of your bench pieces, guys like Ackley and Stanton for a SP upgrade. As of now, looking at your team I'd put your 10 keepers as follows:

Votto
Bautista
Trout
Harper
Weaver
Felix
Wieters
Miley

With some flex for the last two spots? I'd also try to figure out who your best non-keepers are and see if you could upgrade that to someone who you would definitely keep.

Again, need some more details though

we do have GS limit ( we get 200 GS limit) which I need to control a little more so I don't use it all up before end of season and lose pitching stats

Not loving Aybar at SS. Would much rather have Bonafacio there when he gets healthy. Even though this is a keeper league, Ackley has been such a terrible disappointment for some. Id see what kind of value he has out on the trade market there. There are talks about him and Smoak going down to the minors soon.

I cant imagine this is more than a 10 team league. The fact that you have Trout and Harper tells me you will be doing quite well for yourself for the next 15 seasons or so lol

I agree that your SPs are top heavy. A big drop off after Wainright

could mauer paired with stanton get you another big hitter to make a keeper or like stated above you could look at moving one of them to get a SP upgrade
