18 Team H2H 7 starting Pit per week.

I went heavy in pitching , 4 of first 5 picks were SP or RP
MOyer, Phi (i pick 4th in waivers and have Padilla, Blackburn, Lohse and Clayton (sd) on my list.
Heath Bell SD
I have no middle relievers... so perhaps I have a "hold" issue. I've never had the hold catagory in a league so perhaps dropping Moyer should be for a MRP vs another starter.. ?
(Edit) Important note, it appears most of the league is ignoring this category also, most of the best "holders" are available , list on the bottom.
Batting... Ok, go ahead and slam me here....

My Strategy...? well. didn't have much of one for this draft, I joined the league about 3 hours before the draft and my other draft isn't until mid march so I was very ill prepared, so I winged it, and decided that SP and RP were going to be my strengths and possible trade route's to upgrade other positions.
I think i'm Stacked at SP and RP given that its an 18 man league.
My Infield is pretty Flexible. I have a number of multi position players which will help.
Batting is generally below average in most positions except Catcher
I'm going to get limited production in the weeks that Cleveland isn't playing a full plate of games.
1) Holds.. as stated above, should Moyer be dumped for a decent MRP instead of another starter ? I'm really unclear on how best to find players that will be strong in "holds", enlighten me.
There are lots of "holders" available according to espn projections.
Mijares, Min, ... Ziegler, Oak ... McClellan and Reyes Stl
Rhodes, Cinc, ... Meyer, Fla ... CJ Wilson, TEX
Lowe, Sea, ... Moylan, Atl ... Ryan Perry, Det
Feliciano, NYM ... Okajama, Bos ... Grabow, Cubs
2) Where would you say my weakest Skill position is. ? Where should I look to upgrade first.
3) Would you move a quality Starter for a major upgrade at a skill position ?
Duly noting that Average, SB, and Homers are not categories and Sacrifices are in the mix, so I guess i'm looking for players that have Runs, RBI's but are also on teams that play more small ball, where sacrifices come into play.
I'd appreciate any opinions that you may have.
