Begs the question. I think the more clear category for discussion is "late innings reliever" versus "closer." Broxton is being paid as a late innings reliever, and I don't hear much quibbling about the contract, just if he is of the right quality. Your argument is dated, rote and one size fits all. I don't think its wise to be that dogmatic about a clear debatable and in a cyclical business.
