It's a toss up at this point...

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.

I'd tend towards Holland.

Johnny Brox's is a mess - Gagne redux very possible.

If anyone is at Spring training would love to hear about Gagne's velocity though.

**Update - found a fan comment on Brox in Spring Training:
"Brox looked good and was throwing around 95-96."

He's pitched in 3 games so far. Why so few?

Rotoworld seems to think Holland will be the guy, but based on last year's #s only.

I'm starting to lean towards Brox now, if his next outings start coming day afters or two days after each based on the report that his fast ball is hitting 95.

Brox fastball down to 92-93 the other day. Mike Montgomery, former KC closer turned media guy, says it is a straight & very hitable 93 too. Monty's money is on Holland to close, says his shizz is filthy.

Yost likes no names, they make him appear smarter. Remember Yost & Turnbow?


Yeh toss up but my money is on Holland.

Holland is the better pitcher right now, but if Broxton can show any chance to effectively fill the roll the Royals should go with him. Front office should prefer Broxton because it provides multiple benefits:
1) Broxton can be shopped easier at the trade deadline for prospects
2) It will keep Holland's arb salaries lower when he is eligible
3) It allows Holland to be used in any high leverage situation instead of just the 9th inning

I don't think it is close. Holland is the better pitcher but broxton will close until he blows a few saves or is traded to whatever contender loses a closer or setup man. (Reds?)
