I am in a league where 2 relief pitchers pitch each day. Holds are not a stat. I currently have Trevor Hoffman, Chad Qualls, and Kevin Gregg on my roster. Should I keep them or go after other available options? Andrew Bailey, Jose Valverde, J.P. Howell, and Troncoso are all available. If you would only pick up one of them...which one would you take....and which of the three currently on my roster would you drop? Thanks for any help you can give me!

1 JP Howell- this guy is golden with his numbers
2. Valverde-reliable when healthy
3. Troncoso- fangraphs.com rate him as the #1 win/save vulture.
Is Qualls injured? If not, then hold him.
Gregg- sometimes you have to take the good with the bad.
Do you have any other players you could drop? I wouldn't drop the ones you have listed so far, I would drop somene else.

I'd take Abreu as a util. Mike Cameron's average will kill you. Wolf is having a good year, but nothing special, he can be replaced. If you roll with Abreu, you are flexible to add whoever you want, or take someone off the DL.
Should I trade Huston Street for Cueto. My pitchers are Verlander,Carpenter,Hanson,Nolasco, Harang,Smoltz,Danks,Porcello,Jenks,Capps,Bailey,Street,Gregg, This is a 12 team league with W,SV,K,IP,ERA

No. Cueto is good, but not as good as he has been pitching. Sell Haraang high, he's your only weak spot there, maybe Smoltz is too. Haraang is having a good year, but he typically regress's in the 2nd half, and his stadium gives up a lot of HR's. I think that you have seen the best of Haraang.

In the only league I had Joba in, I traded him for JP Howell. Joba is good, not great. Shouldn't hurt to start him, but if he does well, sell him high. He will end up with a WHIP that wont be so good.
