Closers are the most overrated players in fantasy baseball. The good ones deliver strong contributions to one category, but generally pitch less than five innings per week.

In fact, my teams have finished tied-first, second, first and first in saves over the last four seasons in my 10-team roto keeper league. How is this possible you ask? It’s simple really.

This fact alone illustrates the high turnover rate at this unstable position. With nearly half of baseball's 30 teams likely to start 2011 with a new closer, it's important for fantasy managers to brush up on the bullpens in transition.
