I was perusing fangraphs and I wondered how bad our bullpen was last year...

 

We didn't have a reliever in the top 50. Some good news, though:

 

1.2 RA9-WAR Jose Veras, tied with Dane de la Rosa, KRod, Dan Otero, Josh Collmenter

0.8 RA9-WAR Pedro Strop, tied with Addison Reed, Aaron Crow, Tanner Roark, Jamey Wright, Luke Gregorson

0.6 RA9-WAR Villanueva + Russell, tied with Boone Logan, Ernesto Frieri, Chad Gaudin, Adam Warren, Jerry Blevins

0.5 RA9-WAR Blake Parker, tied with Matt Albers, David Purcey, Bryan Morris, Joe Thatcher, Jared Burton, Wilton Lopez

0.2 RA9-WAR Wesley Wright, tied with a lot of people...

 

Joaquin Benoit is the highest that is still available via free agency, 7th in baseball, putting up a 2.6 RA9-WAR, tied with Neal Cotts and Mark Melancon. That's rated higher than Mariano Rivera and David Robertson's 2.5.

That is nice to see that our new relievers have a low WAR.  Correct me if I am wrong, but didn't Gaudin used to be on the Cubs?

Actually, the stats given are runs allowed WAR, like pitching WAR, low numbers are bad.
