Most times LaRussa doesn't even use him for a whole inning. It is kinda hard to get wins like that. But I agree if your league counts holds he is a good guy to have.SaintsOfTheDiamond wrote:Lofunzo wrote:SaintsOfTheDiamond wrote:Does Ray King not qualify as flying under the radar this year? I didn't see him mentioned. He doesn't eat up a lot of innings, but his numbers are phenomenal. His ERA was around 1.50 most of the year until he got roughed up a little at the end, and his WHIP was sub 1.00 most of the year too.
A little low on IP and W for my tastes but at least you don't have to worry about him getting drafted.
True. He'll probably be lucky to get past 70 IP, but he should get lots of holds if you count them since he's coming in to face the lefties with a lead.

The biggest drawback is in a 5X5 league where you are unable to recover in strikeouts by giving up roster spots with relievers. A great reliever will get you about 90 K's while a mediocre starter can get you 150+ K's. Times this by 3 roster spots and it's an about extra 200 K's you'll miss out on with the relievers.
