Your team looks pretty solid. Your pitching is not that bad but you could probably upgrade if needed. Try dealing a hitter on your bench and a pitcher for a quality starter. Since wins and saves are weighted heavily, you could also try getting another closer off waivers. I'm sure there are solid players on the wire in a 10 team league.

not too bad of a team only thing i would say with your bats is you need some speed bad, especially with SB being worth 2 points apiece... i would try packaging a power guy and an arm like slowey to upgrade there, your arms really aren't that bad, i like the balance you have with Kazmir who will get you Ws and high Ks, Vazquez who will give you a ton of Ks and should win more this year, Dempster who i think is very very underrated on the best NL central team hes a high W and K guy and then the upside of Cueto and Parra to round out your rotation... i would look to combo maybe Slowey/Giambi (if there are still takers on Giambi) or Slowey/Johnson (Johnson has some good value as 2B isn't all that deep, his value drops a bit in a smaller 10 teamer, but someone will take him...) hope this helps...

help me out...
