So COL CL Fuentes goes on the list.
Seems like the consensus that Rivera isnt #1, but still top 5.
Dotel is up in the air, as recent research has said he isnt a proven closer like we thought, but definately has the skills to be where he was drafted (10th according to FBCafe)

Rankings updated to fit these.

Foulke has more job security for the rest of the year than our president. His ERA could be 15 and they'd keep him on the mound methinks
Foulke is probably not going to be moved out of the closers role but if he is, the next in line is Matt Mantei.

Thanks chipper!!!!

There is such a thing called clutch and David Ortiz is the modern day definition of it

Bernero's too high on both lists for being in a supposed CBC and not converting a single opportunity yet.

I'd move Shields up to the top of the 3rd group - #25.

He's the top MR this year, has 5 saves and monster numbers. Based on his past there's no reason he wont keep it up. No reason to rank Borowski above him just cause he may be a closer. much less Affelt, Fuentes and Walker.

He wont keep up the saves when KRod gets back, which is this week (supposedly i believe).

KRod's out for a while now... but also, Shields had 3 save opps before K-Rod went on the DL. He also had 3 W's already, along with 8 last year. 31 K's in 24.2 seems pretty good too.

I think he should be higher, just because he's consistent. With all the closer shuffling, he seems like a lock for 120-160 IP with good ERA, WHIP and K's, while picking up a few saves and wins along the way.

Also, where is Dempster!?! He's clearly the guy right now, so he should be top 30, easy. Also, would like to see Kolb a little higher... they're not just going to kick him to the curb as you can see from tonight!
