Apparently, he was using the same pitch to start off every batter, and as we all know it does not take advanced scouts long to pick up on that. They noticed this because every single batter was coming up to the plate first pitch swinging, even the people that are known as overly patient.
As far as the middle reliever strategy...
Yeah, I never draft the guys ... there is always plenty of guys available.
If your league counts holds, I would bet dollars to donuts that guys like Bruney and Koplove are readily available on the wire.
You owe me donuts and dollars. Koplove is not available. Bruney and his 5.56 ERA and 1.9 WHIP are.
My league uses holds and good holders go in the draft. In a good holds league, it's cutthroat for the holders and relying on the waiver wire ain't gonna work.
