It depends on the bullpen your facing. Last year, against the Reds Bullpen, it wouldn't have been too bad to have three lefties in a row - Phil Norton (until they acquired Gabe) was it, and for most of the year teams wanted Phil Norton in the game.
Against Mike Myers, well you wouldn't want three lefties in a row against him.
So, is it overrated - sometimes yes, yes it is. But there are other times when it isn't.
Hows that for a non-answer
