I usually draft 5 or 6 starters, depending on the innings limit and then 3 closers and fill out the rest of my staff at least 3 and sometimes as many as 5 relievers. The relievers I target are not usually just a handcuff to my closer. I tend to look for guys with high K/9 and low whip that tend to get 80+ IP. I guess what I'm asking is who to target that meet this criteria that isn't necessarily an 8th inning set-up guy. It seems I can normally get these guys with my last 4 or 5 picks since almost no-one is targeting them and I get ridiculed for wasting my final few picks. But I generally win the K, whip and era cats. An example of these types for me would be...Romo, Thornton, Lindstrom, Gurrier, Zumaya, maybe even Burton from Cincy. Thanks for any others you could add to this list.
