Because that assumption isn't often true.
Obviously there'll be some variation week-to-week. Just like there is with starters. On the whole, though, I'm not sure you couldn't expect steadier
production spreading the innings over two middle relievers. You're not going to have any equivalent to the "two start week" that you get for starters. You're going to be out there 2-3 times every week. I'm mainly talking about K's and a positive impact on your ratios here. Wins are such a crap shoot, starters or relievers. Who knows when these will ever fall into your lap...
