Cheap Effective Relief
U.S.S. Mariner talks about how the Mariners have been able to have a solid bullpen for little money. Other than Putz, how many household names to the Mariners have? George Sherrill is about as good as you get for name guys. The biggest thing for the Mariners, is how well their farm products have done for league minimum-ish. Half of the guys in the Mariners bullpen could do better than Octavio Dotel, who just signed a two year deal worth $11M. The money that is being saved is what we are seeing in these pricey free agent starter signings.
