I like your team quite a bit, actually. Your power should be incredible, with Howard, Reynolds, Dunn, and Braun all capable of 40~ homers. Montero is great value at catcher, and Werth, Rasmus, and Phillips should provide some speed balance to your starting lineup. I'm a little concerned about having Alex Gonzalez as your starting SS, however. Who is on the waiver wire?
Michael Bourn and Aaron Hill are nice bench options, as Bourn could address your relative speed deficiency, whereas Hill will allow you to make a trade and hopefully upgrade SS.
As for pitching, I'm worried about Haren's decline, and never been a believer in CJ Wilson (no particular real reason). Anderson and Scherzer could be great or...they could suffer from the curse of youth.
Your bullpen philosophy is exactly mine- grab a known quantity (in this case Bailey, although his injury doesn't help), and fill in the gaps with closers-in-waiting and stud setup men.
Trade one of your 2B to upgrade at SS and scour the waiver wire for SP options. Are any of the following available?
If so, stash Bailey on your DL and grab one of these guys for added starting depth.
Hope that helped; good luck!

Look at it this way-- if Stauffer is going to do anything this year, he'll need to produce. Otherwise, he'll be out. So start him. It's early, take the risk and (hopefully) reap whatever rewards are there.
