I searched but I couldn't find anything, but usually someone makes a thread of players on Yahoo! that are both SP,RP eligible. I have an odd H2H league with scoring categories and team positions that I am looking to take advantage of. The pitching cats are W, SV, K, HLD, ERA, WHIP with 6 SP spots, and 3 RPs. Thus my plan is to punt W and K and focus on the other categories. Since I only have 3 RP spots to work with, I need pitchers that can get holds with SP eligibility. So far the only worthwhile pitchers I have found are, Bennett,Jeff Kuo,Hong-Chih Masterson,Justin Villanueva,Carlos
Has anyone else looked for these options also, or know of any pitchers that may gain SP,RP eligibility during this season?
Most of the rest aren't worth your time, but I'll throw some out:
Jeff Samardzija (not yet but if he gets some starts) J.A. Happ (not yet but if he gets bullpen duty) Jason Hammel Chan Ho Park Ryan Rowland-Smith Clayton Richard Yusmeiro Petit Garrett Mock Matt Albers
Hal·la·day, n. 1. every fifth day in Philadelphia. 2. a day of rest for the bullpen. 3. innings eater. 4. doc. 5. ace.

Because I'm that kinda guy, and have access to things you don't, let me whip you up the full list:
Miguel Batista Chan Ho Park Brian Moehler John Bale Mark Hendrickson Seth McClung Claudio Vargas Chad Gaudin Jeff Bennett Jorge De La Rosa Cha Seung Baek Dan Meyer Ryan Rowland-Smith Anthony Reyes Brad Thompson Jorge Campillo Jason Vargas Jason Bergmann Hong-Chih Kuo Brian Burres Anthony Lerew Dustin Nippert Yusmeiro Petit Jason Hammel Sean Marshall Boof Bonser Carlos Villanueva Zach Miner Chris Sampson Matt Albers Andrew Miller Dennis Sarfate Pat Misch Ross Ohlendorf Brandon Morrow Dallas Braden Virgil Vasquez Phil Dumatrait Joba Chamberlain Dan Giese Luis Mendoza Garrett Mock Max Scherzer Justin Masterson Brian Bass Burke Badenhop Ryan Tucker Clayton Richard Dirk Hayhurst Chris Lambert Jarrod Parker Jeremy Hellickson Brian Matusz
I do not think your strategy will work too well. The guys that have sp,rp eligibilty are not dominant enough and will thus likely wreak havoc on your era and whip. You also will not have any advantage in saves to the other teams. Also you could get these guys cheap anyway. So you are punting two categories for a marginal at best gain in one category.
