Holds are easy to find. Just pick the setup man of any team.

If you don't find one by opening day, don't worry. Once the season gets going, it'll be easy to find some because you'll see how the bullpens shape up. You'll be able to see how the managers use their relievers. Just don't be too slow. If you want one now, I'd suggest Jensen, Cashner, Pestano, Holland, Reed, Soriano, but I don't know if they are available. you'd get better results if you posted on here some of the top FA's

Broxton and holland are both free agents right now so maybe i should wait and see which will close and which will setup? otherwise scott downs is a fa, as well as reed, cashner, chapman, and lidge

what about dropping Marshall and adding Broxton and Holland. then no matter who is in what seat you will get both stats.

I would not advise doing this.

It sounds like you have a lot of good options available right now. Who would you be dropping for one of these guys?
