Not sure I understand that? Can you elaborate. I would think the opposite.
With the 3P spots, you can still start every closer you have and start Marmol, whereas in a 3RP no P league, you would be sacrificing a reliever who can get you saves by starting Marmol.

Also don't get this.
I would use a SP spot for Smoltz, and use guys that are only RP eligible in my RP spots :-?

because I need to start 3 RP not the normal 2. There are 36 RP's used. There are not 36 roster worthy closers in MLB so the top line setup men become valuable even though they will not get saves. I would move Marmol when Smoltz becomes a RP in yahoo because while I can use him as a starter I think I would be better off moving Marmol because I think having 4 RP would be overkill seeing as the other teams likely only have 2 solid RP. That is something I need to think about.
