My First Mock Draft

Hey everyone, I am fairly new to fantasy baseball, and so in preparation for the season I've decided to do plenty of mock drafts to get myself ready for actual drafts. I went into this draft without much of a strategy or preparation, and without much experience in fantasy baseball I am not to sure how to rate my team. I did this mock draft on mockdraftcentral.com, and had the 6th pick of 10 in a standard snake draft. Standard 5x5 roto league.

A couple of notes about my team:

1) Loved getting Tulo where I did. Considering SS is so thin, and the elite is really separated from the rest, I was happy with this pick.

2) My team strength is definitely starting pitching, with three (possibly 4, if counting Yu) aces. I definitely think I have the best staff, and had this been a real league I could have traded the depth to address other needs.

3) Since I am fairly new to fantasy baseball, I don't really know what to make of my team. Overall, I like it, and if certain players can have bounceback years (Davis, Werth, Freese) I feel this team would be good.

So, what's your take on it? Where can I improve, and how do you think this team would do. Also, any advice for me that would help?
