Who to drop for a relief (holds) pitcher? WHIR.

Postby NikeTxGuy » Mon May 02, 2011 2:39 pm

I have to choose between Kuroda, Ogando & Kennedy, who would you drop to pick up another holds guy? (I could also drop Jerry Sands too... and then drop one of the above three for a top prospect, but it would still present the question: Who would you drop out of Kuroda, Ogando & Kennedy?)

This is a list of the guys that have the most holds (from free agency, with number of holds in parentheses):
(We count ERA, W, BB, K, Holds, Saves & K/9 in our league for pitching). Which one out of the following should I pick up?

Tony Sipp - (8) 2.08 ERA, 6.92 K/9
Rafael Betancourt - (8) 2.19 ERA, 8.76 K/9
Grant Balfour - (7) 2.45 ERA, 9.82 K/9
Jamey Wright - (7) 1.29 ERA, 7.07 K/9
David Robertson - (6) 1.86 ERA, 12.10 K/9 (who I am thinking on picking up as a holds guy, to pair up with Marshall, I like that he is a setup pitcher for Mariano Rivera, but will he keep this type of consistency up?)
Clay Hensley - (6) 2.61 ERA, 5.23 K/9
Kerry Wood - (5) 1.93 ERA, 8.68 K/9
Matt Lindstrom - (5) 0.84 ERA, 8.44 K/9 (another possibility)

Luke Gregerson - (3) 1.42 ERA, 6.39 K/9


This is my current relief pitching :

RP - Francisco Cordero (SV)
RP - Jordan Walden (SV)
RP - Sean Marshall (HLD)
RP - Kevin Gregg (SV)
RP - ? (after dropping Kuroda, Ogando, Kennedy or Jerry Sands)

I like Kuroda the best, so either of the other two are fine to drop, and Sands isnt of much use either IMO. And just ride the hot hand each week, go Robertson then uncan always adjust if sorisno comes back strong

As a NYY fan i love Robertson, but I would pick Wood/Lindstrom and drop Ogando. Or trade Kennedy (sell high!)

Help? http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=429301
