Re: Nick Travieso
You value the bullpen more than most. A closer maybe, but if a top 15 pick becomes a setup man 5-7 years after he's drafted, I'm disappointed. Not a bust per se, but still disappointing if that is the result.
Disappointment probably a result of high expectations. If you also look back and see guys in the top 15 who never made it -- and there are always some -- the solid setup guy looks OK.
