In today's game, how much would you spend on the bullpen?

50 million for a big market team?

I'd offer $50M to Mariano Rivera to come back.

The bullpen is still a place where teams routinely overpay. While overpaying some veterans is unavoidable, ideally the bullpen is manned primarily by your young guys coming up through the system.

This.

You can in theorthe build a bullpen through free gent but you are way more likely to make several enormous mistakes that hamstring the team financially.

Amass as many non-starting power pitchers, then add as needed from the market.

Addison Reed has been fantastic. I wouldn't sign him to a four year/$48m deal however.

I would do what needs to be done to make Wade Davis a Met next year.

I think the Dodgers have a good system. Have 6 or 7 starting pitchers and use the DL to keep them fresh.

As for spending, I'm torn on where to spend. Catcher, CF, Bullpen, 3B. Spread it around and cross my fingers I suppose. That probably means about 10 million on the pen next year. Keep Blevens and wait for the market to settle, then sign the best guy still out there for 2 years 13. Sign another guy for 1 year 4 and hope for the best.

The only reason i bring this up because Yankees may have the best bullpen in game.

Royals won a world series with shut down relievers. Is it smarter to spend in the bullpen
