here are the categories for my league.
R, H, 1B, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, BB, AVG IP, W, CG, SHO, SV, K, HLD, ERA, WHIP, K/BB
If there is no site that can help me maybe you guys can give some players that will do well in this system.

Copy projected stats off a site like sportsline or yahoo, then put them in MS Excel and add a point value to each category then sort each player by projected points.

Personally...I'm thinking when you have a format like this, you just want the best players like you would in a normal fantasy draft. You're basically adding one speed category (triples), one "power" category (doubles), and two things that go hand in hand with average - hits and singles. Walks is a little different though. Speed guys and people who have good plate discipline may be a little better but not by much. Just one quick example...Taveras might have more value moving to Colorado because he should get a ton of triples there.

You'll need a MR or two due to the holds, but otherwise just get the best pitchers that pitch a lot of innings because innings begets the other stats like CG and K's.

I am also doing a 10x10 league this year with other odd Sabermetric stats...I'm not going to worry about picking random guys based on one or two extra cats. I think it will all balance out.

Cla Meredith, Linebrink, Neshek should be good for holds, pick one or two of them late.
They will help keep your ERA down and help with the K stats.
Linebrink may get the most actual holds, but the other 2 would probably be a bit better overall, at least based on last year's performance.
The "bonus" with Linebrink is that he's the guy that steps in as closer if Trevor misses any time, and he could be traded to another team to close. A lot of teams would like him in that role.
