we have a points based league
we are limited to 7 starts per week, and we set lineups daily.
with our points system, a lights out set up guy like Gregorson, who has something like 40 Ks and 2 BBs, with a bunch of Holds, is reasonably valuable, but needs to keep it up to score in the range of the crappier closers.
we only have 2 relief pitcher slots on our starting lineup card, but we have 5 additional slots for starting pitchers.
but we set lineups daily, so the SP slots are often empty, and people started figuring out that if they pitchers who qualify at SP but are pitching as RP then no matter how good they are it's like free points to slot them in to an empty SP slot.
which is why I have the SP/RP guys listed above.
here's the trade I'm offered:
Ryan Braun (LF)
Matt Holliday (LF)
Jose Contreras (SP/RP) has been reserve closer and gets lots of holds (I'd dropp Duensing)
Brian Fuentes (Closer) (I'd drop Gregorson)
I declined this trade. I see Braun as a much better keeper than Holliday.
