Vulture Wins and Market Corrections Due for Many MLB Relief Pitchers

Checking out the stats of reliever David Robertson of the Yankees, I'm wondering how many wins this guy will end up with in 2012. Sure he missed a little time earlier in the season but he has only one win so far. He's averaged four wins per year the last two years. I think with him being the set up guy for New York there's a decent chance a market correction takes place and he ends up with four or five wins this year as well.

Here is a list of quality relievers (decent k/9,WHIP & BAA/SLGA) with two or fewer wins this year who come in during tied/winning situations. Note that those leagues that use holds as a category probably will not have many of these pitchers available.

From the American League: David Robertson, Joel Peralta, Joaquin Benoit as solid, Grant Balfour as mid level and with Scott Downs and Mike Adams as fringe.

From the National League: Sean Burnett, Jason Grilli, Mitchell Boggs and Jeremy Affeldt as solid, Randy Choate as mid level with David Hernandez aand Josh Lindblom as fringe.

Any thoughts or pitchers I missed?
