Some relievers are likely to get more wins than other relievers due to the managers use of said player, but just because it's more likely (i.e. probable) doesn't mean it's going to happen.
Just to revisit stat line from the past, I remember having Keith Foulke on my fantasy team when he was the closer for the A's in 2003. He has 9 wins and 43 saves , now those are fantasy numbers.
I remember that about Foulke because he lost his job in 02 and then was traded to OAK for Koch and I grabbed him in every league as my top closer. He was unreal that year.
