I'd say the market for middle relievers is just fine.
Just to point out at how terribly bad this point is:
Lambo [I'll give the Pirates this one as a good return]
Bowker, Joe Martinez
Farnsworth (w/ Ankiel):
Chavez, and Blanco
^ But overall thats some real FINE market for RP. Those middle relief pitchers netted some awful great
value in return. The Middle RP, is booming with bountiful returns.
