Have you had or do you know of anyone who has had success using mediocre starting pitchers out of the bullpen instead of solid RP due to more pitches? If all things are equal is 80-60 better than 65-45-30-30 from the pen?

All else equal 80-60 is far more preferable than 65-45-30-30. At least to me, especially out of the pen.

all else being equal 80-60 is way better than 65-45-30-30.

The better question, what is better, all else being equal, 80-60 or 70-65-45-40?  I'd say those are about equal.  80-60 for a reliever isn't very good.  I wouldn't expect that guy to be a hammer.

That was kind of my point, I can identify the elite RP with no problems, it's just trying to fill out the rest of my bullpen. I guess my original question on trade chat with a guy was more along the lines of your question taz. I should have used better numbers.

I don't have any specific examples, just trying to recover from an awful FA period in one of my worlds and brainstorming.

Yea, it's probably they they let guys get on base, they get replaced, and the runners don't score.

65-45-30-30 better have All-World splits, otherwise he gets rocked.  I'm not sure I could see myself using a 65-45-30-30 guy in the majors.

Bad pitches is bad. It is all comparative, but the more high pitches you have, the better. Anything under 50 is suspect. If you have 3 over 60, and 1 under 40 per se, then a catcher with a very high PC rating might help. But personally, I look at pitches before I look at splits...as long as both spilts are over 45 or so.
