Your team looks pretty good. I can understand why you've been losing so far. Konerko has gotten of to a slow start as well as Young and the rest of the Texas offense. Your SP didn't get much done last week and you only have one closer. I think your offense should come around pretty soon. Konerko hit his first one yesterday, so hopefully he's getting warmed up. You might struggle for SB. Your pitching looks to be in much worse shape than your offense. Pedro is an ace but after that there is a dropoff. Lowry can be a dependable number 2 but he hit the DL last week. Cain has huge updise but he is only a rookie so I expect him to have more than one or two bad outings. Tomko is probably on the waiver wire in most leagues, and I'm not sure I like him for this year. Penny is good when healthy and could be a nice pick. RP is a mess. Miceli is the only guy getting saves right now. Cabrera is the closer of the future in Cleveland, but something drastic will have to happen for it to be this year. Wickman, Mota, and potentially even Betancourt are all ahead of him for the closers role. Gagne is hurt right now, so you have a huge problem at RP. You definitely need to add another closer, even if they only have the job temporarily.

thanks for the tips, you've confirmed what I was most worried about. Should I hold Gagne and Noah until they're back or try to unload them.

I would say hold on to Gagne. You should be able to DL him if you have one.

Eric Gagne had successful elbow surgery on Friday and he's expected back in 6-8 weeks. - From an article I read today.
Also I would suggest getting some more SB's in the lineup somehow.
