The more I look at that offense, the more I think I went with too much hype/upside over safe, proven players. You could say that about my pitching as well, but I'm less worried about that than I am my offense. Any thoughts?

offense is fine, pitching is really weak in a 12 teamer

I agree, pitching is pretty weak. I would trade HanRam for a proven 1-2 starter. Peralta should serve you well enough. You could probably unload either Butler, Trumbo or Morales for a decent reliever. Up to you.

I'd agree that you went for too many upside guys, but the flip-side of that coin is that your team should hella fun to watch. Trading Han-Ram for high-end pitching help isn't a terrible idea, and you should be able to land a top-shelf ace from some team that fell asleep at the wheel and drafted two of those guys. Personally, I'd hold on to the Trumbo-Morales handcuff (which I like) until you know how that shakes out.

I agree with the other guys, you have an exciting and promising group of hitters but your pitching is bad. Try to trade either Hanley or Peralta for SP help. Obviously, Peralta won't fetch you as much but your lineup will take less of a hit. See which one gets you the best offer in terms of their relative value.

I just traded Trumbo and Peralta for Logan Morrison, Adam Dunn, and Ubaldo Jimenez.

Yeah definitely needed to shore up some pitching, which you did pretty well if Jimenez has a bounce back season.
