top holders/set-up men?

Postby SouthSider » Wed Feb 02, 2005 6:12 pm

I'm looking for some people who can get me some holds in my league. Right now Tom Gordon and Mike Gonzalez are off the board. Who are the best ones after that?

Some possibiliteis I was thinking of:

Juan Rincon (gets holds + Ks)
Kiko Calero
Damaso Marte
SouthSider

Brendan Donnelly (Don't forget him, he was a stud before he broke his nose, and wasn't half bad when he came back)
Akinori Otsuka
Damaso Marte

Off the top of my head...
Yes, I was, uh... I was thinking about ordering the tape, the videotape... about the college girls and the... the wild... the wildness. They're going wild or something? Somebody told me... about going wild.

Is Gordon still the man?

Additional question here: forgive my memory, but didn't the Yankees add another set-up man, who will take Holds away from Gordon?

I seem to remember someone coming in who might share holds with Flash, and diminish his fantasy value.

Felix Rodriquez from Philly. I'd still run with Flash.

Also:
Yhency Brazoban (takes Mota's job as the bridge to Gagne ... excellent peripherals)
Tim Worrell (ol' reliable)
Chris Reitsma (next stop: Kolb)

Its hard to take holds away from another player... the only way it would happen is if they used somebody else instead of flash, if they both pitched then they would both be eligible for a hld... other players to target for holds would be Worrell in Philly and Linebrink in SD. Worrell especially since he will pick up the saves when Wagner gets put on the DL

Otsuka is a good one. Linebrink was great for me last year. Tavarez was awesome last year for W and HLD as well as a low ERA. I like Brazoban for this season.
