FROD (I think he's easily #1)
Lidge
Nathan
Ryan
Pap

If Pap goes the roation then I'd put C. Cordero in there. No idea if/when Hanson will close. I also think that guys like Soriano, Cabrera, Zumaya, Dotel, & Cassidy could all become elite closers. Dotel a 2nd time around closing be a FA next year.

In order IMO

Ryan
KRod
Papelbon
Nathan
Street

Mariano is still the man but eventually his stats will start to become humanlike.

I'm starting to think Keeper and Closer are oxymorons.

I had 0 closers kept this year and now I have Papelbon and Tom Gordon who are the top 2 in my points league.

So Yea none
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

Good point...starting to think the same, unless the keeper rules force you to keep 1. This is a position that can be most strongly strengthened throughout the season through efficient waiver trolling.

Wow 8-o Pap is in everyones top 5? A guy has a nice 3rd of the season and he is all of a sudden Eckersley. This forum can get overwhelming with the love for young players. Anytime a young guy has even a good WEEK he is the next great player. :-°

He's 30 innings pitched, 31 k's, 20 saves, 0.297 ERA!, 0.626 WHIP with only 4 walks!!!!!

Now thats really not a "nice" 3rd of the season, thats just pure domination...would still love to see what he can do in the rotation but for the time being, leave him in the closers role

I was at the Rangers game where he blew the save, the ball that Blalock hit was at his head, kind of a fluke hit if you asked me, but that would be homerish

Thanks chipper!!!!

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