I've gone back and forth on whether or not to throw saves and go for holds since no one in my league goes for it and I have tied it every week with 0 on the week. I figure I'll give up a loss, but I can trade my closers for upgrade at other positions. I feel pretty confident in my team right now, but there are a few FA's that I could see doing REALLY well, and I figure why not trade some guys when I have 'em hot. I could improve at a few key positions and continue to dominate. So right now I'm wondering who I should/could trade to improve, and if any of the FA's out there are worth picking up on my team.
The FA I'm looking at who I think could do a really good job for me down the line, having a starting job are:
Dave Bush - He is a FA but his K/BB rate is really good. He is the worst victim of bad luck and defense, and I could easily see this turning around soon. Is he better than any of my starters now? Will he get better? Should I deal one of my other starters to upgrade another position and pick him up?
Johnny Peralta - He's been awesome and I could see him doing great this year. Should I just stick with Rollins and stop complaining?
Chris Duncan - Showed great promise last year and is doing the same thing. He could play in my OF right now. Will it last?
There are some speed guys and other FA, but nothing special. I'll just list their names. Sosa, Dan Johnson, Ryan Garko, Willy Taveras, Kenny Lofton, Carlos Pena; pitchers - Gil Meche, Chad Gaudin, Randy Wolf.
Then there is my last question. I've been going back and forth on whether or not to boot saves and go for holds. On one hand, I feel like I can pick up Shields and Linebrink and win that category every week. On the other hand, I don't know how safe I'd be with those two, because I don't know if those two would be a sure thing or not to get me at least 1 or 2 holds every week. I've already traded all my closers except for Jenks, but there are still guys like Accardo and Torres and Cordero out there, so I could pick up some saves if I need to. What I'm wondering is if I should punt saves and go for holds or try and go for some closers and actually try and win saves every week. What do you guys think?

Can anyone with a brain actually give me some help. I promise I'll respond back and even give good feedback on your posts. Heck, I might even read what you are asking.
