at the end of your draft. I think he will be more than servicable after all the top-name holds guys are long gone.
I second this.

I don't see why this is relevant. Holds, like saves, is entirely a situational stat. What one can glean from his Hld/Game ratio is that (as a young pitcher, mainly his age 22-23 seasons) he hasn't been put in the position to get a lot of holds; it tells you little about how successful he would be in that role.
J.J. Putz is a much bigger concern than his Hld/Game ratio.
