Had to spin my comment on today's post into a glossary suggestion.

While most appropriately used with Greg "Holland" any closer may "stick a finger in his dyke" when he comes up with a strong performance (or two on the same day in both ends of a double header) whereby he cements his hold on the closer role which had previously been tenuous at best.

May also be used as verb as suggested by @ktodd to "Dyke Finger"

Replaces overused sports cliche "stop the bleeding"

Are there nickname suggestions as well? If so I would suggest The Little Dutch Boy for Greg Holland

Yeah, it's funny but it's a very specific example with Holland... Not sure it works for 'stop the bleeding' but will run it by Rudy...

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
