What do you guys think of Holds as a scoring stat?

I like the category.

It allowed me to use all my innings. Kept me from spot starting crappy starters that don't belong on fantasy teams. Helped me place 2nd in WHIP & ERA, 1st in Ks and 1st in Ws. Guys like Shields, Qualls and Ugie were great for me.

I think adds something unique to most leagues.

I'm against holds.. they really serve no importance (except to the Yanks) and it turns into a "first person to the MRs wins" type of game...

How is that any different than a "first person to Bonds wins" type of thing with OBP or OPS or a "first person to player X" wins in this cat?? At least with holds, no one is gonna waste an early pick on a MR but it does add some strategy.
