I also considered switching Cabrera and Juan Gone, but decided to go with the veteran in the 8 spot acting almost as a 2nd cleanup.
My P is weaker than I thought it would be, especially considering I have no starting LHP. Not to mention this is probably going to be a waiver wire league as it comes down the stretch - guys rotating in free agent SPs daily.

I couldn't help but notice Kent batting 7th. Interesting choice. Any particular reason for that?

I was almost trying to set it up as a 2 teir lineup with L/R in mind.
The first 5 are pretty straight forward, but the 2nd 4 (6-9 hitters) I tried to create a 2nd "top of the order" situation. To me Kent will always be a #2 hitter, and Dunn displayed an ability to leadoff in the past (as the 6th hitter he can combine his power and speed a bit more). Juan Gone can be viewed as the 2nd cleanup hitter with Posada as protection.

I also gave some thought to hitting Kent 2nd, dropping Dunn to 7th and batting Beltran 6th.
