here is my pitching staff. 5x5, 12 team league.

Adam Wainwright
Ricky Nolasco
Jered Weaver
Brett Anderson
Hiroki Kuroda
Jason Hammel
Felipe Paulino

Trevor Hoffman
Chris Perez
Franklin Morales
Jon Rauch
Kevin Gregg
Matt Thornton

I have a bunch of relief pitcher lottery tickets as I don't believe in paying for saves. If Frasor is officially named the closer, I will drop Gregg for a speculative closer with a little better skill set (Brandon League, Dan Meyer) I do feel like Gregg could possibly get traded to Minnesota, which could clean some things up.

My starting staff is a bit different. I feel like my top 4 are strong, with Anderson having some upside. I feel like Kuroda is a perfect back end starter because of the predictability and strong WHIP. I am only going to start Hammel on the road and I believe Paulino could surprise this year. The question is, do I need to trade one of my outfielders (Heyward, Pence, C. Gonzalez, Rios, Granderson, Ethier) for a starting pitcher or should I feel confident about what I have?

I'd let it ride for now and see how they do in April.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
