People undervalue closers because most of the time they dont do as much for your team as a hitter or an sp. Noone really wants to focus on specific stats in the first few rounds. Thats why people wait on speed and saves. Closers normally don't help your k's maybe the highest being around 130 k's a year, but teh average is like 70. ERA and whip is not affected that much by closers having great stats. And saves well saves is specific. In the first few rounds you can get a hitter with great hr, rbi, runs, avg and sometimes even speed. Or an SP who has wins, great k's, a good era and whip. The ranks on yahoo arent great because some of these closers have a 1 era and less than 1 whip, and really they dont pitch enough innings for it to affect it. But on the ranks a 1 era through 60 ip is the same as a 1 era through 200 ip.
