    You don't even have to look outside of the stats. Career wins above rmpnaceeelt (baseball reference's version) with the Mets:Garrett 13.2Franco 12.8So there's that. In addition, Garrett did his work over eight seasons, while Franco had fourteen. Garrett was more valuable season to season, and had a better peak. For example, if you just take each player's three best seasons:Garrett 9.5 winsFranco 5.4 winsMost of John Franco's seasons are made up of 60 or so innings and a good but not great ERA. Basically, the argument is that relievers just aren't that valuable. They're like kickers in the NFL you do want to have a good one, because they do help you win close games, but you need to make sure the games are close first. Kickers and closers are icing on the cake for good teams. A good third baseman helps you win more games than a good closer, which is why Garrett is ahead of Franco.
