Ranking The Bullpens (2013)

 

By Muntradamus

BEAST DOME NATION.

It’s the end of the 6th Inning.  Your starting pitcher just got a huge Strikeout to get out of a jam and keep his 2-1 lead heading into 7th.  Everything is looking good on the box score, besides the 111 Pitch’s, which means his day is definitely over and it is now in hands of the bullpen.

Raise your hand if you have been in this situation before?

Keep them raised if the bullpen blew the lead in the 7th Inning.  The game is tied at 2-2 and all you can do is turn off the TV and have horrible thoughts about a middle reliever you’ve never heard of before, or someone that constantly kills your starters every appearance.

Today I present to you an article where you can avoid pitchers on these teams, and instead grab starters from the teams with ELITE bullpens.  So that 2-1 lead, is more than good for the next 3 INN.  This my friends, is the Bullpen Rankings.
