Ignore Joaquin Benoit's one miserable game and he's on the verge of breaking out. Cabrera vs. Benoit last night was quite a matchup.

Shout out to Manuel Corpas, still only owned in just 3 percent of leagues. And Justin Speier, owned in 6 percent. Both rising to shut-down status.

Just dropped Mike Gonzalez for Cabrera. After missing out on guys like Broxton and Zumaya last year in a keeper holds league, I've been keeping my eye out for young dominant middle relievers. I know they're out there but they don't usually last too long. In any case, he can't be worse than Gonzalez who is the sole reason I didn't pick up Zumaya last year. :-[

Can somebody help me find some sleeper holds guys? My holds guys has been rather dissapointing this year

Rauch only has 5
Crain, Fultz and Coffey each only has 4(and Coffey hasn't done anything other than sucking in mop up lately)
Accardo is the biggest disappointment at 1

I have a couple guys in the minors who's also stinking it up

Hennessey has 2
Medders has 2
Chin-Hui Tsao has 0

I have 4 spots for those guys, I'm okay with Rauch, Crain and Fultz doing decent, but the 4th spot is troubling.

And if what Yoda has been saying is right, I'll lose my #1 holds guy earlier or later :-t

Are there any little-known middle men who qualify at SP in Yahoo! leagues?

"Rauch only has 5"

Jeez, what are your expectations? The league leader in holds, Matt Capps, only has 8.

Again, check out Corpas, tied for second with Speier, MacDougal, and Turnbow, with 6 holds.

"Just dropped Mike Gonzalez for Cabrera"

That was a mistake. I like and own Cabrera, but Gonzalez has also been a strikeout machine and has a much better role in the bullpen. Long run, he'll put up a better than 1 strikeout-per-inning, have a lot of holds, and could end up as closer. It could be Soriano. Could be Gonzalez. But I'll bet on Gonzalez before I bet on Cabrera as closer.

"Are there any little-known middle men who qualify at SP in Yahoo! leagues?"

(don't have Yahoo's eligibility in hand, but in order of like) Kevin Gregg, Casey Jansenn, Jonathan Sanchez, Kirk Sarloos, Brian Stokes, Carlos Villanueva, Scott Downs, Shaun Marcum, Brad Hennessey.
