There is a difference between ranking middle relievers based upon the likelihood that they will be named closer at some point, and those used for holds. This is a bit of a mixed bag, but mainly holds guys.

I've got Mike Gonzalez, and I'm still hopeful for good things, but yesterday he couldn't find the plate and loaded the bases with an infield single and two walks, and the pitcher who relieved him allowed two of those runners to score. Two ER and 3 baserunners in zero IP doesn't do good for ERA and WHIP.

Add to the list Shigtoshi Hasegawa for Seattle. On Saturday, he pitched 2-2/3 IP against Texas allowing only one hit. He allowed the Mariners to catch up, and was in line for the win, before Guardado blew the save.
