Mound Musings: Sleeper Relievers: Finding Saves

This article is part of our Mound Musings series.

While it's still fresh, I thought I'd provide my two cents on the news that broke during one of my drafts Tuesday night. When I heard the Dodgers were sold to Magic Johnson, I was a little surprised at the timing, but not the buyer. Two things did shock me however: the purchase price of $2 billion, and this news:

"Mr. McCourt and certain affiliates of the purchasers will also be forming a joint venture, which will acquire the Chavez Ravine property for an additional $150 million."

So if I read this right, McCourt walks away with around $500 million after debt repayments and buying out his ex-wife AND he keeps his greasy tentacles in the Dodgers. Perhaps as a huge fan I can look past this, but every time I roll up on Chavez Ravine I'll be parking on McCourt land, and I don't like how that feels. It's like being diagnosed with cancer, undergoing surgery and having the doctor say "Well, we got most of it." I guess I have to be OK with that. Getting Cole Hamels and other free agents next offseason will help ease that small amount of uneasiness. And if I were to pick the face of the franchise, I could hardly do better than the Magic man.

Anyway, on to the point of this article … pitching. We're going to focus on the bullpen this week and look at some sleeper relievers.
