    Darn. Granderson would have really helped.

    As far as the pitching, you have 4 really good SP's and two (Harang, Duke) that are pretty close to be really good and close to each other in talent. For that reason, I'd hang onto both of them for the time being. Eventually, you'll need to pick up another reliever probably, but there's no rush. Let the season start with what you have and give them a chance to put up some numbers and see how you compare to other teams for a couple weeks. If Duke or Harang really struggle then you can consider making a move. If they both take off and excel, you've got trade bait to get your other reliever (who likely will be better than what you find on the wire).

    What if his league doesn't give points for holds? Mine doesn't.
