Rodneys alot older then the others on this list so I don't see as much "potential"...

Craig Hansen-Future Closer!
Jose Capellan-Future Closer but, talk of putting back in the starting rotation.
Jonathan Broxton-Future Closer!

I'd rank them like that, though I personally am not sure if Cappy has what it takes to close games.

Don't forget Chris Ray (the O's) and Chad Orvella (TB) although TB added Shinji Mori to their mix.
Just another amateur learning to paint w/ "the light of the world".

Mike Gonzalez of the Pirates.

Pittsburgh shipped out Jose Mesa so Gonzalez inherits the closer job. Not exactly new information but was highly thought of last year and should do okay this year with the opportunity. Good strikeout pitcher that doesn't give up the longball very often.

If I'm not mistaken the majority, if not all, of the relievers on the Reds' roster are in their mid to upper 30's. 8-o Except for Coffey. I really don't see Wagner doing much again and see Weathers being the main closer this year as well.

I would watch Coffey. He could make things interesting this year if the others struggle. ;-D
