Not positive this is the right forum for the question..... but:

Of these lower tier Closers and Upper tier MR's, who do you guys like best now that the season is a couple weeks old? I have a bunch of these guys on my roster but can't decide which are best to keep around and which I should add off waivers. Potential for saves is nice... but I'd rather have guys who will help in K's, ERA, WHIP, IP, and who don't give up HR.

I guess if you had to pick 4 to make up your roster (forgetting about Starting Pitchers) which would you go with?

Closers almost always have more value than the MR's.

Middle relievers value come in when you're trying to keep your ratios (ERA and WHIP) from getting too high. Before you worry about what MRs you're going to use, put in the closers first.
