Nice starting point ;-D

My thoughts:

K-Rod & Nathan up to tier 2
Izzy up to tier 3 (with Chad Cordero, Ryan & Street)
Gonzalez & Valverde up to tier 5
I wouldn't even have Urbina on the list, given his current situation
Be prepared to move Dotel up once we know where he's going
Shields should be tier 7 (or maybe even tier 6 - best set-up guy IMO)
Linebrink & Politte should be in there (either Tier 7 or 8)

Your list looks fairly good to me, but 2 guys I noticed that you left out that should be mentioned especially if you are in deeper leagues. Joey Devine and Chad Orvella

Definitely move Nathan up to tier 2: 40+ saves last 2 yrs, great K/BB ratio, etc. Actually did better last year than year before.

Gagne iffy: move him down from tier 2.

Benitez, if he's healthy and closing for the Giants, ought to be at least tier 4, if not higher.

Hoffman and Isringhausen up to tier 3. They don't belong with guys like Turnbow, Jenks, Guardado, and Wickman (had the yr of his life).

All i ask is you move K-Rod and Nathan up to tier 2, and Gagne to tier 3.

I think Jesse Crain should also be added somewhere near the bottom of the list.

Jose Valverde is far, far too low. Here's his second half from last season:
32 games, 2-1, 14 saves, 36.1 innings, 42 K, 1.24 ERA, 0.80 WHIP, .161 BAA.

Wickman is too high...I have him below Todd Jones.

Scott Linebrink could be added at the bottom.

I would add Travis Bowyer to that list, since he probably will be closing for the Marlins.
