Well mostly any closer that has the job full time is worth a spot on some team in a 12 team league. And as for holds some other guys I would say are worth drafting that you don't have on that list are

Borowski
King
Villone
Mercker
DeJean
Brazoban(If he doesn't close)
Calero

But you should know holds leaders change every year pretty much, it's pretty much just a good idea then to just pick the MR's with the best ratios and hope for the best.

Looks like a pretty good list. Some of those guys are questionable as to where they'll be or if they'll be closing, but overall I wouldn't worry about.

It's really too early to tell because you don't know who's going to wind up where. Alot of the MR and the CL guys could flip-flop. For instance, BJ Ryan could become a setup man for a team like the Yankees, and Tom Gordon could become a closer for another team.

Pretty much any closer has value though, since there are only a certain amount of them.
