To qualify my post before anyone who likes the stats get offended. I'm not saying people who use holds are bad at fantasy, I'm saying they mess up the structure of the league in a way that I don't like the league setup. The only way to makes holds work by themselves are to add some sort of stat to hitters that lowers the value of power hitters. Something like K as a negative works ok.
Starting pitchers already only contribute to 80% of the stats, when you add holds they only contribute to 66% of them. In leagues that do something like OPS and Holds you have good hitters contributing to 100% and pitchers only 66%. It crushes the value of the SP.
