Batter: Sean Rodriguez (TB - 2b, OF) Ian Desmond (Was - 2B, SS) Austin Jackson (Det - OF) Gaby Sanchez (Fla - 1B)
below is my current roster:
12-team 6x6 H2H Yahoo! NON-KEEPER league (includes HOLDS) c: Doumit 1b: Miguel Cabrera 2b: Cano ss: Stephen Drew 3b: David Wright IF: Chris Davis OF: Sizemore, Granderson, BJ upton Utl: Carlos Gonzalez BN: E. Cabrera, Heyward SP: Hamels, Nolasco, James Shields, Scherzer, J. Sanchez, Buchholz, Slowey RP: Bell, Neftali Feliz, Frasor, Joba DL: Wood, Mike Gonzalez Stat categories: Hitters: R, HR, RBI, SB, BA, OPS Pitchers: W, SV, K, ERA, WHIP, HOLDS
Since this league has Holds, I was considering Downs or Bard, but with both Sizemore & Cargo being hurt a little I might need a little help to fill in if they're out for any extended time...and I can always use Closers as trade bait...

Id go with Daniel Bard. You currently have 3 closers and a total of 5 rostered, and Joba as your only source of Holds. I'd nab Bard. Desmond was tempting but I think Heyward is more then able to hold down a starting spot while you split time with CarGo and Grady until both are 100% healthy. Rodney is tempting, but I think you could benefit more from Bard.
Gregg is a heck no in my eyes. Its already been reported that Gaston doesn't want to use closers on back 2 back nights, and he has Frasor, Gregg and Downs as all arms that can handle that task, so it basically becomes a closer by committee.
I would add Gregerson over Bard then. You get the best of both worlds there, Rodney everyone is saying for saves (until Fuentes comes back, and yes Brian WILL get the job back) and myself for Bard for holds. Gregerson will get you those holds, good ratios, strong Ks and have a solid chance at holds with all the chance Bell gets dealt to a contender. Even if Bell doesn't Gregerson is still a top choice for holds.
As far as Everth goes, he can't drop him. He has an extra IF position, and if Davis struggles at least its an option that he can plug Cabrera in there and platoon a power bat with a speed guy.
Forgot Fuentes was going on the DL today...so you could get a few saves if you needed from Rodney..but either get Bard or Gregerson...i think you should get a decent amount of saves...maybe take gregg over frasor right now since he was named the closer
