He's a big reason the Padres are where they are. The thing I don't like about Holds is that you can still give up runs and still get credit for holds. I'd like to see a stat where you pitch a full inning and give up no runs being on the leading team.

Your infatuation with Gregorson is odd.

wow that is actually pretty amazing. I wish I had this guy in my fantasy league that counts holds as a category!

Congrats luke

Luke Gregerson is one of, arguably, the best relievers in the game. He's been consistent for 2 years now. Great K/9 and no one can hit him. Even though Holds are pretty irrelevant doesn't discredit people not knowing who this guy is.

After W-L for relievers

His "no dot" slider is pretty nasty. Luke is a huge part of what has made the Padres pen so successful this year. Of course, it doesn't hurt that you also have Adams and Bell after that...

Saves still hold that title, unless Holds become relevant.

saves at one point had meaning, back when people did mutilple inning saves, now they mean nothing. holds never have had nor ever will have any meaning

exactly what I was thinking.

and not to take too much away from the holds stat itself, but does anyone really care? It's like a save, another worthless stat really, but only less valuable.

I don't care for the holds stat, but with that said, I would take Gregerson on my team ANYTIME. Anyone who says they don't know him are obviously not a fan of the game.

Can someone tell me what a "hold" is?

I never understood that stat

Only 37? I would think the record would be a lot higher than that. But gratz regardless.

Basically a middle relievers save. You "hold" the lead. You could technically have your whole BP get a hold in one game, hell one inning.

so how is this more valuable when your team has the lead than pitching scoreless innings when you are tied or trailing by one run. If Gregorson pitched for the Royals he would not have 1/2 those holds, however the best reliever on the M's could have 50+ (hypothetically)...

sure, its a stat and tells you something, but I think there is something missing there...

The next thing that they will be measuring is who leads the league in adjusting their cups....

Wins, Holds, and Saves are commercial stats that are easier on the eyes for the ill-informed fan.
