I think I would have an issue with cutting Milone from this roster. His are not great stats, but how can anyone deny these numbers in his first full season as a starter? He is not going to blow anyone awy, but you would have to agree that there is more of a ceiling here.

This is Milone's ceiling. He's a soft tossing lefty that can't strike anyone out or pitch on the road. He's completely replaceable.

Is this a daily transaction league where you can bench Moss the days he isn't playing? Do you need to roster a backup C with Yadi playing so many games normally? I'd certainly hold Milone and at least start him for the home games. If need be, I'd let go most/all of the holds guys; there are usually guys step up into great 7th and 8th inning guys that no 1 could have predicted before the season.
I think you'll get better answers once you've narrowed down your choices to a few and include exactly how your league operates and how those choices will be used. Clippard, Robertson & Madson all look great, but how many holds guys do you need to start with? Do you keep an extra holds guy over a 3rd 1st basemen or a 2nd C who doesn't get much playing time for you?
When asking for roster advice in these pages, remember there are thousands of different sets of league rules & many different active roster settings. If you want the best replies, be sure to include your leagues particulars in the original post

I agree with you on your comments about Hlds guys, I picked up most on waivers. I will only keep those that have a strong possibility of closing. Thanks for all the responses, I will cut most of the guys indicated except for Mayberry and Milone.
