I question your rankings if you don't have Ryan in your top 4.

Ryan is definitely Top 5 and right with Nathan, K-Rod and Wagner but still a margin behind Papelbon.

Nathan and Ryan would be my top 2 choices for 2006.

Many closers have 3 or less blown saves.

Anyways, I'd rank Nathan 1st in 2006, followed closely by Ryan and Papelbon.

Mike Gonzalez has not blown a save all year long! Not 1 save. And his ERA is what, 2.17 or so? He gets my vote.

No Otsuka? His only blown saves I believe are against the Red Sox and Yanks...other than that he's been solid.

Where's all these Putz lovers, complaining but no one is voting for him? Huh, maybe some other closer should be on the poll instead of Putz.
