Holds....

Postby hitman176 » Thu Apr 08, 2004 12:24 pm

What designates a hold? The league I am in this year uses holds and im not 100% what they are. All I know is I drafted a bunch of setup men in the attempt to grab some.

Going into the game in a save situation, not giving up the lead, and leaving before the game is over = hold.

Basically it's a save in the middle of the game. Or a save is really a hold at the end of the game.

They should do away with saves and just have holds.

EDIT: from MLB.com http://mlb.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/mlb/official_info/about_mlb/rules_regulations.jsp

The "Hold":
The hold is not an official statistic, but it was created as a way to credit middle relief pitchers for a job well done. Starting pitchers get wins, and closers -- the relief pitchers who come in at the end of the game -- get saves, but the guys who pitch in between the two rarely get either statistic. So what's the most important thing one of these middle relievers can do? "Hold" a lead. If a reliever comes into a game to protect a lead, gets at least one out and leaves without giving up that lead, he gets a hold. But you can't get a save and a hold at the same time.

Yep.
And Quantrill, Marte, Lidge, Donnelly... are some of the best in the game for this cat.

Obviously your team has to have a chance at winnning to record a hold so checking matchups is a good idea, as well as picking MR guys from winning teams.

good luck

I've got one so far, from Worrell last night. One category I'm up in as my H2H opponent has Lidge...we'll see how long that lasts though. I'll have Brendan 'the helmet' Donnelly when he comes back...

You can have more than one hold per game. Both Q and Gordon canget a hold, if they each hold the lead.
