I'm pretty sure if we made a study we would find that great starting pitchers make more money than great closers. Peavy if the Sox pick up his contract which they won't can make $22,000,000 next year. I don't know any closers that make that kind of money. Hell, his buyout is $4,000,000 and wasn't Jenks making that with the Sox.

PS Just found this site on salaries, Starters make more than closers but there won't have to be any tag days for relief pitchers.

That doesn't mean they can file grievances over their assignment. Like I said, if players could grieve because they have more earning potential with some other job assignment, the list of grievances would be endless.
