If you do a search on 'holds", you'll find a lot of threads where people offer their top set up guys. Here's one.

So is it fair to say that to look for the best RP (non-closer) in terms of ERA, WHIP, and K's (all 3 stats) I should pay attention to holds?

Well, does your league count holds if not then you dont need guys that get you holds, if your just getting some cheap ERA and WHIP abd K's i would have to say Juan Rincon, Yhency Brazoban, Akinori Otsuka, and Brendan Donnelly are my favs for MR

In general, that will be true, but there are certainly some exceptions. There are guys like Stanton and Weathers who will tend to get lots of holds, but have very high WHIPs, and others, like King, Cormier, Quantrill who aren't big K guys. But, you might start by going to someplace like rotochamps.com or the ESPN site and rank guys by holds. Then, take a look at their other stats to prioritize your list.

I agree, although Hawkins has a pretty good chance of becoming the closer, and Gonzalez has an outside chance if Mesa struggles.

BJ Ryan is a stud and with Julio hurt Ryan is the closer. Check his K/9 inn ratio. I also like M. Gonzalez and in a year or two Garcia is going to be closing games in Oaktown. He pitched for Kane County Cougars and had some impressive K ratio.

Nobbody mentioned Brendon Donnelly, Scott Linebrink, or Juan Rincon.

And if you are looking for someone way out there, how about Grant Balfour?

Here are his second half numbers: 3.75 era, 1.37 whip, 29 K in 24 IP, plus a lowhr/9 rate. I think he could improve on those and be a good middle reliever. He will be around in the last round of your draft.
