Rod Beck back soon- sleeper for Holds???

Postby JamesBond007 » Tue May 11, 2004 1:22 pm

He was very good last year as a closer in the 2nd half. My league is deep and counts holds. I figure he'll be 3rd in line for saves behind Hoffman and Otsuka. Is he worth picking up for Holds? Also, i have Huisman from KC, hoping he gets to close. Should i just dump him for Beck?

Sounds good to me, I think Huis'er is 3rd in line behind Field and Cerada and Beck, well, he's old but made a nice comeback last year.

beck isnt a bad choice but SD may continue to use otsuka as the primary set up man. he has been very good so far.

I might try Remlinger before Beck. From a pure holds stand point, Remlinger should get more based on a lefty vs. lefty standpoint . And the fact the only lefty in the Cub pen he faces competition from is Mercker.

Otsuka will remain the primary set up guy.

Have you heard official word on this somewhere? As an Otsuka owner in two leagues, I'm trying to stay on top of this.
