not sure how many starters you start, but I think I would look to add another starter. If sheets is healthy when he comes back, I think your team looks good...that is a huge question mark though. The middle to back of your rotation is so so...

offer josh johnson, t. jones and reyes and a bench position player who you want use but is tradable and get
2 middle line starters and a top closer or a ace like buehrle a mid level pitcher and a low-mid closer to replace todd jones id go with someone like otsuka.

With Sheets on the mend, there's a dropoff in SP quality after Peavy that I would try to address. Johnson and Reyes for a proven and reliable starter is one idea. Burrell is killing your team right now, but I think he can still be sold to a team desparate for power (19 HR/54 RBI still looks good on paper).

I'd be inclined to give up on Hamels and try to shore up the OF while Burrell and Swisher battle through horrible Junes.
I found Mike Cameron on the WW in two leagues, not saying he's the long term answer (if available) but he's been en fuego the last month.

Carpenter, Peavy, Dontrelle have all had their share of no decisions and lack of run support, D-Train is coming around nicely and all are aces. Johnson has put together a solid year, Lowe and Bedard OK, Reyes has ace potential.
