I would not be as harsh on your OF as Bodacious. You obviously put much greater focus on your infield which is smart. They are much harder to replace than OFs. Kemp and Hamilton are unreliable high risk/high reward guys. Carrying both doesn't make your OF a mess, though if either starts hot I'd try to trade high on them.
Heyward is not unreliable as long as you didn't draft him expect him to be an elite 5-tool player. He's actually a very reliable "pretty good" 5 tool type with terrific potential upside because he is still only 24 and might yet have a breakout season in him.
That said you should probably try to add a reliable power hitter but I don't think it's your biggest weakness.

Wow, I basically agree with everything you said about the outfield. I can't believe Heyward is still only 24!
I think Morneau and Dunn are both droppable - I'm confident that Pujols and Abreu is plenty at 1b, and I just don't see much reason to roster either one in a 12t league anyway. With the two open spots, maybe grab R. Davis for some speed (if he's available) or perhaps Rendon or Miller (again, if either are available) just to have a back up at 2b/3b or ss/2b.
Your weakest area is definitely RP. And you're going to have a hard time with stolen bases.
Adam Dunn will most likely be even less useful than the past few years since he's almost certainly in an official platoon. I'd drop Dunn for the best speedy OF type available post haste. Maybe Rajai Davis is out there.
I wouldn't trade for a closer, at least not right away, just keep a very close eye on closer news and watch the waiver wire.

Your OF is a mess...they are all unreliable, and likely to just be plain awful - especially in the case of Heyward. Dunn is going to strike out 200+ times and his BA is going to bury you and you have no speed. The only guy on this roster that has a legit shot at 30HR & 100RBI is Beltre...this offense will struggle big time. See if Ventura or Smyly is available that would upgrade your SP.
