I think you did pretty well.

On quick inspection, I would think speed is slightly lacking on the offensive side. Looking at your bench, it seems the only options on the waiver wire would be subs/utilities. Maybe keeping an eye out for Velez, Burriss or Bonifacio (or someone like that) if one of them should win a job, would be helpful.

In the pitching, would personally prefer another closer or closer in-waiting (but I suppose villanueva may fill that role before long).

Like Baker. Love zimm, braun, kemp, conor and adrian.
Also YoGa and Jair.

All this is to say - nice job and a good start to the season. Not much to critique - just personal preferences.

If you have a chance, can you take a pick at mine?

Ok, so lets start with the good stuff...Adrian Gonzalez is good times (although he plays in a terrible hitters park he still puts up solid numbers,) we all know about Ryan Braun, and Matt Kemp is primed for a great season! Now for the not so good, outside of Gallardo your pitching needs some serious work. Harang is serviceable even though he didn't pitch well last year he still will provide you with a ton of K's. Overall on scale of 1-10 I would rate your team as being around a 6-7.
