I've got quite a few relievers..but they are mostly middle men..can anyone explain the advantages/disadvantages of this? Obviously they are not going to get a whole lot of wins and saves, but are they generally known for good era's and whip's? Is it possible to generalize on this?
If you mean middle men as guys who pitch in the 7th-8th innings then if you have the top ones they could be very valuable to a team.
I have Zumaya and Shields and if you had them both last year it added up to roughly 13 W's, 180K's, 170 IP 2.40 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP
Thats money right there. Fortunately i had deep benches to carry all of them but its like a borderline #1 starter on your team for late round picks. Like someone said before, you can use more earlier picks on bats instead of worrying about picking up that solid #3 sp right away
