I would say you need 2 things. A top tier pitcher, and a power hitter. Is it roto or points? If it's not roto then you could skip the power because you do have good hitters, but I would definitely look to get a pitcher. There are some good options on the FA list right now. I would ditch Burnett. He's an older pitcher with a high era on a bad team.
Just so this doesn't get lost in the thread I'm posting up top. Do NOT drop Bailey. Sure he got off to a bad start, but he's come around this last month into the pitcher he's been. 30K's in the last 33 1/3, 3.51 ERA and a 1.2 WHIP. He has a fantastic defense behind him (which helps) and while a 8.1 k/9 and a 2.7 BB/9 isn't elite, its damn good for a #3 - which makes him more than usable.
Dropping AJ and Garza, on the other hand, makes perfect sense. If you can't find anyone better on waivers - then play the match-up game and stream your tail off.
