I guess relief pitchers aren't as valuable as they seem to be.

Mariano Rivera is tied for 25th all-time, 5th among pitchers. Since WAR is a counting stat it's harder for them to accumulate WAR because of the low number of innings they play. If you go by WAR/IP, relievers like Rivera are extremely valuable. Rivera had 0.030 WAR per inning, while Pettitte had 0.021, for example.

Fun fact: Alex Rodriguez would be on 10th place on this list if he had retired last season. This season he currently has -1.1 WAR, enough for taking him out of the list.

I am surprised Willie Randolph snuck in there. I would have picked a bigger star like Mattingly.
