yea I'm pretty much punting Holds in this league, so I'll just pick up some "flavor of the week" player once I can put Pavano on the DL to start the season...
let me know if there are any holes that you think I need to address to this team...
WW as of now is skim on hitters and relievers (nothing special in terms of holds); SP talent on WW is pretty much dried up
i think you did a good job picking your team...your pretty solid all the way around and you have some real talent in nice positions such as gomes and tracy who could have big seasons. I also like lowell cuz he's playing in boston and will see a lot of fast balls w/ that lineup and there will be plenty of RBI opportunities if he bats down in the 6 or 7 hole. the one thing your team really lacks is a true power hitter, yea utley will get you 25 and gomes hopefully if he lives up to hype 30 + but that is the only problem i see unless tracy can perform or alou hits 30 again or lowell gets back to the all star he was in florida...overall nice job though i think

This may sound crazy, but what if you punted saves instead of holds. Trade your closers for bats and then pick up the holds guys. A hold is worth as much as a save. You would still be punting one cat, but you could improve you offense. Just a though.
