Funny you asked that as I just dropped my newly acquired Mayberry and picked up Aceves after I read that he, and not Melencon, was going to be the new Boston closer.
As for other setup arms on FA... there are a bunch of them including: Venters, Adams, Rodriguez, Crain, Rauch, Parnell, R. Ramirez, Lidge, Lindstrom, and Sipp.
Since Holds is not a cat, I've been a bit careful in playing hunches on setup men until Aceves bit my butt... Start: 3SP, 2RP, 4P.
Here are my current pitchers: Hudson, Garcia, Cueto, Chacin, Niese, Samadja, Danks, Porcello and Guerra, Jansen, Thornton, Aceves
