Gagne's the perfect illustration of why I don't think relief pitchers are a big factor in this draft. The guy was awful, then completely unhittable for a few years, then turned right back into a pumpkin and was out of the league before you knew it. Pitching out of the bullpen is just insanely volatile. Aside from two or three guys, I think it's tough to really consider most closers to be all-time greats.
