Is Mariano Rivera a good enough reason
5 wins 33 saves 1.79 ERA and .79 Whip over 60 innings gives you one helluva an advantage.
In roto leagues a stud closer can damn near when you a league so 1 dominant closer in the 4th or 5th round is by no means a luxury. Especially a K guy like Lidge or K-Rod and especially if the league you're playing in is competitive.
If it is then there's no way you can accumulate all those waiver wire closers. They get spread around.
