Has a section on holds for the coming season.

Broxton, Okajima, Neshek are all good options. Here are some more: Heath Bell, Jon Rauch, Rafael Bettencourt, Scot Shields, Tony Pena/Brandon Lyon(whichever one doesn't end up closing), Justin Speier, Ryan Franklin, Aaron Heilman, George Sherrill, Scott Downs, Chad Qualls, Scott Linebrink and there are several more. Most of those guys could and should manage 20+ holds and the top elite guys will have 30+. Zumaya won't pitch till the Break at the earliest and I'm very skeptical of what he'll be capable of when he does return. Draft with caution and only if you have multiple DL slots.

0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

Broxton,Betancourt,Neshek,Bell & Okajima I believe will be the top tier MR studs

These guys will give you 5-7 W's/ Sub 3.00 ERA/ 70-100 K's and a 1.1 ish Whip.. Deeze are some sick dudes that can put your pitching in a really nice spot
