Rockies Bullpen Getting National Attention

5. Rockies
Closer: Wade Davis
Top setup options: Mike DunnBryan ShawAdam OttavinoJake McGeeChris Rusin

The Rox basically bought their way onto this list (though I can assure you not a single dollar went to the author). Their expenditures on Davis, Shaw and McGee, combined with what they's already committed to Dunn and Ottavino, mean they'll be investing one-third of their payroll on five relievers. I'd certainly like this arrangement a lot better if Colorado was getting 2014-15 Davis. And because of his aforementioned workload the last five years, Shaw might be a ticking time bomb. But if healthy, the Rockies will be effective, and multi-inning man Rusin was an unsung hero last year.
