If this is a redraft league, I would probably rather have Holland. Profar is an up and coming player but the odds that he has much value this year is pretty minimal. Where as Holland can be an above average closer.

But I am also one less likely to buy into shinny new things. One reason I didn't own Trout last year (though I did own Harper in a few leagues).

Hey mate, can i ask you if you would drop Taveras for Beckham, i have my doubts about Rutledge, or should i wait for Rut to fail?

Profar is blocked right at the moment, barring a trade, so doubt you get much out of him unless someone gets hurt and even then I don't see a 20 year old infielder making that much impact considering you already have Castro and have no MI spot to put him in. You will get much more use out of Holland.

I would wait it out. If you have doubts I would look to deal Taveras and Rutledge for an upgrade. Taveras would be snagged pretty quick. Not sure Beckham is a better answer than Rut is.
