I'm not in love with this team, sorry... Between Napoli's chronic hip problem (and not having a backup on your team), Hamilton's injury prone ways, Curtis Granderson in your UTIL (you know he's out until at least May, right?), Eaton on your bench (out 6-8 weeks.. drop him!), Paul Konerko's question-mark performance outlook (will he repeat last year's first half?) and Utley's injury history, this doesn't look like a team I'd feel very comfortable with. At all.
In a 10-team league, there should be a better 2B available than Scutaro. Great to have as a backup, but I wouldn't want him to start for me every day. I'd much rather have a Josh Rutledge if available, for instance. Aramis and Starlin are good picks for 3B and short, and Stanton is clearly a great pick. Jackson is a fine OF3.
Your SP is better, though again: I do not see a legit ace. Gio is an upper tier guy for sure, CC and Shields are about in the same tier, but missing out on a true ace (Felix, Verlander, Weaver, Price, those kinds of guys) in a pitcher's league could be devastating. Moore needs to turn it around to be useful, but he's a decent pick. Axford and Broxton are decent RPs, can't hurt you that much if the return to form.
Your bench is weak. As mentioned, Eaton is droppable because he's injured (get Starling Marte if you want a similar guy to replace him), Utley is fine when healthy, Michael Young is a question mark, Berkman is not roster worthy in a 10-team league (there are better 1B backup alternatives on the wire -- Colvin, Garret Jones, those kinds of guys). Ben Revere is definitely rosterable; I like him for steals. Your bench pitchers are solid though, save for E-Jax. You're in good shape there.
Sorry, I wish I could've been more positive. There are just too many question marks, injury prone and mediocre guys on your roster for me to feel comfortable, especially in a 10-team league.
