Good sleeper for holds this year could be AJ Ramos in miami. They won't win alot but when they do it'll probably be close. 12.3 k/9 in the minors and he closed through the minors so he's used to the pressure situations.

Lets just say i disagree with the holds lists so far


+1 on the :-?

As to Joe Mauer's original query, bayside has the idea ... go for the known quantities in the 7th-8th innings who can boost you in other categories (K/9, WHIP, ERA, etc.). In some cases you may even be pleasantly surprised when they ascend to the 9th inning spot in place of a struggling/injured closer.

Thanks everyone for their responses. I am finishing up my prep and the holds (well, saves + holds for me) was the last thing I was looking into. I was surprised my post got this late surge of information. Thanks again!
