+1 on this big time. I don't think Tim Hudson is a reliable enough fantasy starter to be excited to have him. He's solid, but nothing to go crazy over.
The offense looks pretty good especially for a 12 team league, but I'm not sure about the starters.
This team is pretty balanced and is solid don't get me wrong, but I wouldn't be willing to sit back and consider it a lock for the championship. Definitely keep your eyes peeled for SP free agents

You can either package a lesser offensive player at a deep position (such as outfield) with Greinke/Haren and go get a true ace like Kershaw or Halladay if possible.
The other option, and in my opinion the more intriguing one, is to sell high on David Freese. I know he's coming off the red hot post season and has had a ridiculous start to 2012, but it is for that exact reason that you may be able to get insane value for him right now from another owner in your league. I wold not dump him by any means, I would try to use him as a key piece to go get another tier 2 starting pitcher (much like a Greinke or Haren) and then you would have three of those tier 2 pitchers on your staff, which would make your overall team much more well rounded and extremely tough to compete with. I think that your offense is good enough to sustain a loss to Freese and that adding another very solid starter could really put your team over the top.
Having trouble getting opinions on my team:
