I just find most bullpen guys replaceable, thus their value is low. Unless you profile to be at least a set up guy, your value is generally low because you should be readily replaceable by a good team. Bench guys are generally the same way. If that is your ceiling.... then I am going to lean toward the guy with a ceiling that is that of a starter even if they haven't proven it yet because teams should easily be able to find a bench player every year on the cheap.
