By the way, I figure I'd add something informative to this thread along the lines of Holds instead of continuing the add/drop talk. Here are the top holders in the past month:
Matt Guerrier, Mark Lowe, Bobby Seay
Phil Coke, Mike Gonzalez, Sean Green, Peter Moylan, Hideki Okajima
Jeremy Affeldt, Pedro Feliciano, Latroy Hawkins, Jim Johnson, Brandon Lyon, Carlos Marmol, Nick Masset, Darren O'Day, Eric O'Flaherty, Darren Oliver, Chan Ho Park, Arthur Rhodes, Chris Sampson, David Weathers
You've got the top 2 holders (Seay, Affeldt), some former closers (Gonzalez, Marmol, Hawkins) and some real blasts from the past (Oliver, Park, Rhodes, Weathers). It's apparent that Okajima is the guy for Boston after all the speculation at the beginning of the season, while Brandon Lyon has long taken a back seat 8th inning role to Fernando Rodney. Some of these guys people probably don't want to touch, but a couple are probably quite ignored that could be valuable.
1) Matt Guerrier and Bobby Seay should not be on your wire if you are in a holds league. They're sticking around.
2) Peter Moylan is as dull as they get, but he's getting quite a few holds and is keeping the ratios at a good level. Doesn't K much.
3) Jeremy Affeldt is the kind of guy that you feel is going to puke all over you once you get too comfortable with him, but he has been very efficient in the past month (no earned runs!). Another guy that shouldn't be on the wire despite the history.
4) Phil Coke is the new Alan Embree in New York, and though he has been knocked around recently, he gets his holds from partial outings and then leaves before he overstays his welcome. The Hughes/Coke duo is working pretty well.
5) Mark Lowe is a great source for K's, and I've seen him hit 99 mph during a game, but man he can have a bad outing here and there. Still, holds and consistent K's might outweigh the ratio issue.
6) Nobody is touching Sean Green and Pedro Feliciano in my league, which is understandable looking at their ratios. However, Feliciano was pitching very well for awhile and despite a mid-June hiccup has been nearly lights out for 2 months now. Sean Green, though, is scary.
Any other comments on up and comers or who the heck Darren O'Day or Eric O'Flaherty are?
