What don't you understand, quick? If a guy gets you zero stats in a specifice scoring cat then he is useless. He was drafted for HOLDS and has come up empty while other good RPs are getting them.

I can't wait around while I fall in this stat. I gotta move.


I think he doesn't understand why you would panic and make a decision based on 2-3 weeks worth of information.

So far Lidge hasn't even had a hold opportunity. The typical holder gets between 30-40 opportunities a year. At this stage, Lidge should have 3-4 hold opportunities, but the Astros have had a lot of blowouts and have been behind in the close games.

It'll even out over the course of the year. He's pitching well with 12.5 Ks per 9 innings, a 0.69 WHIP and a 1.02 ERA.

Good advice---wait 6-8 weeks before you make a move. Do you see the Yanks trying to waive A-Rod? Good teams recognize that it takes time to see where your team is really strong and where it is really weak.

gtwMA, I know exactly what you mean. But...HOLDS are strange animals. I looked at Lidge's opportunities and he has like 8 appearances and no HOLDS. I would rather grab the guy with 3 HOLDS five appearances and ride him while Lidge's Astros start playing close games.

I am only carrying two middle men and thus it is imperative that they both produce. I am 2nd to last in HOLDS waiting for Lidge to collect.

Brad Lidge (best MR IMO)
Francisco Rodriguez (pretty much just as good as Lidge...some may say better)

I'm second to last in 4 offensive categories because about 6 of my guys are batting under .230. It's way too early to panic.

Last year Dotel made 76 appearances and had 39 opportunities. I can guarantee you every good holder had a string of 8-12 appearances last year where they had no holds. It happens. In September Lidge will have 70+ appearances, 30+ opportunities, and 25+ holds.
