This puts you in posiition to eke more points out of the save category if that is what you need at the end of the season. For example, if it is Agusut and you have 25 saves from your one closer and the three guys in the category in front of you have 35-45, it is relatively easy to catch all them and gain 3 points. This can be by trade or by picking up one of several of the crappy closers that inevitably emerge late in the season as guys get hurt or traded.
Same thing could be said for SBs, another category people sometimes want to punt. Instead of punting, it is better to make a minimal investment to give the flexibility to make an adjustment to pick points in the latter half of the season if low-hanging fruit emerges in that category.
The odds of the AL MVP coming from the American League are looking pretty good.
