I see a lot of questions on your offense. I am afraid Vlad is starting to go the way of the steep drop and worries me, I love him as a player and it is sad, but he is starting to slip. Chipper = injury. Hanram = no protection. I would be concerned that your pitching will not be able to help you stay afloat if your hitters go downhill.

I like the Damon/Soriano for Ibanez/McGowan trade a lot. I don't really like the Crawford/Blalock for Vlad/Snell deal, though. I think you gave up too much value there, although I could see why you opted for more power. Still, I wouldn't have done it.

Nevertheless, you've got a very balanced team on your hands. The infield is very solid. Chipper is a bit of an injury risk but you've got Zimmerman behind him so that's not too big of a concern. The outfield is top-notch and your UTLs are great as well. Burnett is slightly risky as a #2, though McGowan is a great breakout candidate. Solid bullpen as well.

If you were to focus on anything, I'd focus on picking up another starting pitcher. Try to target a guy who flies under-the-radar like Billingsley. Good luck.
