Folks , A wonderful strategy ! I use it ,love it, BUT......I've been burned by it. If you go back and look at the best relievers from year to year, rarely do they show up in any consistant basis. Some like octavio dotel were great for 3 years, but FE- ROD and Art Rhodes,and pitchers like them , can fall into decline fast.....Be careful the guys you pick, and Only take them when they cost you relatively nothing. Even better , FA selection or waiver wire claim.
The stategy only works when you draft them extremely late, or on the super cheap. This is where you minimize your risk.
I've seen some jump the gun on guys like this too early when there is still talent left to be drafted or bought. So the lesson here is USE THESE GUYS, BUT DONT SPEND FOR THEM OR DRAFT THEM TOO EARLY.... After all is said and done, pitchers like Mike Gonzalez, Ryan, MAdsen, come from NO where every season, and can be had for NOTHING if you are astute ! Rotodog
