Down the Stretch: The Top Relief Pitchers of 2010

posted by Jon Williams

The best relievers in the game are not always the biggest names. Koji Uehara is the new closer for the Orioles although they did not bother to make a big announcement of the fact. Joe Thatcher is a great reliever that does not get saves. Heath Bell was one of the best sleeper picks I ever made. You can always count on the Mets to give up on good talent.
