I'm also in the closers are vastly overrated camp, but I've found the role does work well for this guy:


His durability is so low, he can't pitch that many innings anyway.  I had him as a Setup A, along with a couple other guys, for a long time, until last season.  At most he's lost only 6-7 innings.  He can't pitch more than 50 or so innings anyway because his durability sucks so bad.  And I have to admit it was kind of fun watching him rack up saves.  Also, even with the durability problem aside, he's not my best relief pitcher, so I don't feel like he's being wasted by not coming into nonsave situations where you want your best guy on the mound.  He needs the non-save situations to recuperate -- poor guy.

So I think it can make sense once in a while.

Yeah. I see guys like that a lot. Very good ratings across the board except for DUR/STA, which can make them a liability at the ML level.
