I've been doing some reading on the relevance of Middle Relievers (MRs) in a 12 team 5x5 H2H league. While clearly they won't do well in wins, they will provide good WHIP , K's, and ERA.
Do you think it would be a smart idea to snag a top MR (such as Matt Thornton of CWS) to help aid in those categories? Would you draft theses guys in the latter rounds? or scour the WW after the draft has taken place?
According to Razzball, the top 10 MRs are:
1. Matt Thornton
2. Fernando Rodney
3. Scott Downs/Jason Frasor
4. Phil Hughes/Joba Chamberlain
5. Takashi Saito
6. Matt Lindstrom
8. Matt Guerrier
9. Drew Storen
10. Franklin Morales

Any help or suggestions will be appreciated!
Thanks guys, WHIR!
