How many teams are in your league? Kinda important to know, as for a 12-team league you seem to have a decent team (but for a 10-team league I'd be getting nervous if I were you).

In very short: I like Lucroy, Votto, Cargo, Ellsbury and Desmond in your starting lineup. I don't like Kinsler unless you got him in a later round than 3 (and autodraft usually doesn't wait that long), and really don't like the Sandoval/Freese combo (both are always injured). Because you have two shortstops (and you don't want to run a shortstop out in your UTIL), I'd actively look into trading either Reyes or Desmond to a team without a stud shortstop. Try to get a 3B in return (try packaging either of your shortstops with either of your 3B to get a better and more reliable 3B in return).

Your pitching is fine, despite lacking a stud. You could do with one more Kennedy+ level starter (try a trade), but Cobb and Minor I really like and your RP (thank you autodraft) is otherworldly.

Uh oh, it's only 10 teams. Thanks so much for your advice! I like your idea to trade a SS for an upgrade at 3B. Injury prone guys makes me nervous.

I think you are lacking a bit of power and SP. I'd reconsider carrying 4 closers and try to get an additional quality SP.

I really like you pitching but I think you need to upgrade your power a tad ...

It really depends on scoring too... In my league pitching is doubled what offense is... so I would look around at scoring and try and strengthen that part. If its pitching make a big trade for a pitcher.. give up a big name offensive player
