For starting pitchers, I really liked Westbrook, Millwood, and Ogea--think they were all under-appreciated.

For relievers, I felt like a lot of closers got a bad wrap for not being "lights out." Wickman and Borowski come to mind, even though I would never go to bat to defend either one.
Chad Ogea was a solid starter for a few seasons. It may not look like it thanks to his near 5.0 ERA, but if I recall he would have like three solid games, 3 ER in 7 IP or whatever, and then get rocked so his numbers skewed.

But he brought it against the Marlins in the World Series. He beat Kevin Brown twice! And the dude all of a sudden was hitting like he was Jim Thome or something and knocked in like four runs.

He came out of no where, did well, and then retired before 30.

Juan Gonzalez and Marty Cordova, both with the criminally underrated 2001 Cleveland Indians.
