Postby D.Piston » Mon Jun 13, 2011 5:48 pm

Holds count in this league.

Pineda, Crow, Morrow, or Wandy Rodriguez?

How many other holds guys do you have? Wandy if he doesn't look good tonight maybe, but none of these SP are generally dropped

If holds count in your league then I would have to drop Wandy out of that group.

I have 2 Hold pitchers- Crow and Sean Marshall. I'm not even sure what the deal is with Crow. Is he a closer? 8th inning (holds guy)? No new news anywhere on him. Wandy is having a pretty good night so far. Maybe I should drop Crow. Holds is so random. Not a fan with these settings, but my hitting is awesome and my pitching staff stinks. I try taking either saves, holds, wins and Ks each week. Thoughts?

"I'm not even sure what the deal is with Crow. Is he a closer?"
Soria is back in the closer role with Crow back to 8th inning.The best holds guys are the 7th and 8th inning guys on winning teams and as we've seen KC hasn't had many late leads to protect lately. Crow would be the easiest to replace
"I try taking either saves, holds, wins and Ks each week"
The weeks where the SP have tough matchups go with holds guys and avoid the good hitting lineups or facing ace SP's. You should be able to add a decent holds guy from the free agent pool whenever you need 1, look for 7 game weeks not facing the best hitting teams.

Keep Crow. He's top talent and if you get holds, he's nice. Wandy is an old pile on top of a mound. I'd set him free.


Not looking for help so much (trade already done) as just an intelligent fantasy baseball convo.
