Shields was awesome for the first half...he tailed off near the end a bit though. I wonder if he had a case of overuse. Still, I'd take him any day in a holds league.
Linebrink's another guy who is really good in setup.
Torres...can't complain there either. He normally gets the job done for the Pirates only to allow the closer to blow it.
Qualls turned out pretty good last year also. I don't know how well the Astros will do this year with Clemens gone, but he may still put up numbers in a weaker division. Howry's another guy to watch out for next year since Cleveland has a good chance of improving.
