Last season, I painfully learned first-hand how FRUSTRATING fantasy baseball life can be when you depend on 'bargain-basement' closers (Riske, Rhodes, Graves).
This season (7-team 5x5 roto with a SHORT bench), I drafted Billy Wagner, Nathan, Izzy, Foulke (he's off my team now), in rounds 8, 9, 10, and 11 and BJ Ryan in round 17 (HUGE bargain).
And, since we have a short bench (20 players total on the team), someone dropped Mariano Rivera when he was having trouble earlier this season.
So my pitching staff consists of:
I had Turnbow but felt like seven closers was overkill.
I'm leading the league in saves, 2nd in wins (Turnbow helped here with 4 wins), 2nd in Ks and 1st in ERA (2.96)
