Yes you could use some help for SP. I'd try and do for a 2 for 1 with your bench so you can get a solid starter.

You hit the nail on the head in your own post. Pitching is where you could use some depth. Personally, I don't like Danks as a starter at all, and to see him #3 on your list is a big concern. What kind of players are available in the FA pool? Pirates pitching is a bit undervalued, so you may be able to find a guy like Eric Bedard who will have a solid season, or AJ Burnett if you feel his move to the NL Central will straighten him out. Again though...those are the "Grasping for straws" kind of guys that can lead to nervous-wreck inducing kinds of games.

Your best bet is to try and package a couple of solid hitters for a second-tier ace or if you feel your need for pitching is worth the weaker hitting, try a 1 for 1 deal with someone like A-Rod or Kemp for a top-end pitcher like Jered Weaver or someone of his ilk. Problem with deals like that though is the recipient of the offer, who then knows you're interested, will often drive up the price and expect more than what the player is worth.

Whatever you opt to do to fix the pitching situation though, it is worth the risk in my opinion. I don't see you able to take this league with only Cliff Lee and a hit-or-miss Josh Johnson. Get creative and best of luck!

UPDATE!

Made a trade - Traded away Brandon Belt and recieved Brandon McCarthy and Broxton. Liking my SP a bit more now but still feel like 1 more move for another decent arm would be a good idea. What does everybody think? What trade ideas do people have? The FA's available are slim to none so a trade is about my only shot.
