I appreciate the advise. I did make a few changes. I took the 57 off the hats and put it on as a bottom snare mic. I'm using Presonus Studio One 2 and they have a great quick and easy tool called Mix Tool for phasing. This improved the sound of my snare.
My room is small and the two overheads I have seem to take care of giving the drums a nice cohesive sound as well as picking up the hats a lot better than I expected.
So much to learn. I really need to soften the room a little but I'm happy with the sound so far.
