Alright, I am in an 8 team league but I still think my pitching staff is pretty good. Definitely the best in my league and the best I've ever had. How would you rate it?

I forgot to mention that I just received Johnny Cueto in a trade yesterday for Robinson Cano. I probably shouldn't have done it given my strong staff and Cano is likely to heat up soon but the package deal was as follows:
I gave Cano and Mark DeRosa and received Cueto and Yunel Escobar. I really couldn't pass up Cueto after I passed him in waivers. So this is what my staff looks like after the trade:
The addition of Cueto was the reason I posted this in the first place...

Well I picked up Santana first (I had last pick and picked up rollins) and I picked up Webb pretty early. Heres the order of my draft:
1. (8) Jimmy Rollins SS
2. (9) Johan Santana SP
3. (24) Carlos Lee OF
4. (25) V?ctor Mart?nez C,1B
5. (40) Justin Morneau 1B
6. (41) Brandon Webb SP
7. (56) Jonathan Papelbon RP
8. (57) Robinson Can? 2B
9. (72) Aaron Harang SP
Here's my batting lineup:
Jimmy Rollins (DL)
Keep in mind that I'm in a 8 team league. I picked up Escobar and Atkins in trades and Reynolds & Hamilton from waivers. I just picked up Jose Lopez too by dropping Livan Hernandez. O don't think my batting lineup is too bad but a lot of my guys have been streaky (hence trading Cano).
It just cracks me up that people come on here to get their staff rated. Are you that lacking in self confidence that you need a bunch of strangers to approve? Or do you just feel the need to brag about how dominating your pitching staff is in an 8 team, free league?
Great job dude! You've fleeced 7 other blind guys.
It is definitley a great staff. My only worry is you have some guys that are doing great now but never have in the past(Lee, Bannister, Owings). As well, your closers minus Papelbon are iffy. Izzy always has a higher ERA, Fuentes got demoted last year and is only in because Corpas sucked, and Rivera is ancient but looking good. Your starters are top notch and I know I wouldn't mind having this staff!
Pretty good similar to my staff except I have more depth and and better overall for my top 5/6 starters and you have a better 1-2-3 combo (My League has extra roster spots thats why I have so many players)
