I would be cautious about Pujols and David Ortiz. They are both getting older so you might want to pick up a younger 1st baseman.

Every team has a chance this time of year;Even the real life Cubs..
You went outfield & SP crazy early,totally neglecting your infield;Which is not smart,since the outfield & SP is so much deeper in talent than the infield.
I think you need to pull off some 2 for 1 trades,to get 2 more pitchers;I think you need either 2 more SPs,or an SP & a closer by trimming down your offense.You have too many hitters,& not enough pitchers.
You should do this by offering 2 hitters for 1 better hitter,then pick up the best available SP,or closer off of waivers.I'd try to upgrade your infield 1st & foremost with a trade like Zimmerman & Ortiz for Miguel Cabrera;Then pick up a pitcher to increase your Ks,Ws,and/or saves,& move aGuy off your bench to replace old man Ortiz..
As is,you've got a pretty average team,7 out of 10..That would need career years from several players,and/or strong bounce back years from players like Pujols & Phillips (Phillips was a nice value pick.) to seriously contend/dominate;Which is highly possible.But,still,Pujols is another guy I'd be shopping in 2 for 1 deals to upgrade 1st base,and get another arm..I draft extra hitters with upside this time of year,but through 2 for 1 trades I'm always down to 0 - 2 offensive benchwarmers by the time the fantasy trade dead line comes.

In an 8 team league your team should be decent. You might have problems with pujols, Phillips, and Zimmerman either getting hurt/underperforming. Phillips won't be nearly as good as last year and Zimmerman always gets hurt. Plus who knows what pujols will do this year. Your pitching should be solid though with 3 closers and the Strasburg/wainwright anchoring your roation. Overall you just hope these players are decent with your good outfield and solid pitching
