is he among the likes of k-rod, nathan, and papelbon? You can't deny those dominant numbers he is putting up.

He's definitely not top tier, but he's shown that he's better than last year's numbers. I'd put him right around Hoffman. He won't keep this up, but he'll be good. He put up pretty solid numbers pitching in Texas don't forget.

He has sold me. I got him in the 14th round, and have loved every minute of it.

He's below the top tier, but he has worked himself into the 2nd tier.

I had him listed at the start of the 2nd tier and have him in every league. He had a miserable april last year but has been solid the rest of his career. A move to the NL and out of Texas can only help that. That being said eventually he'll give up hits and he does walk too many so I imagine eventually his WHIP will push him out of the elite level.

He's near the top of the 2nd tier. Lots of Ks/SVs with good ratios. With Turnbow being lights out, he is going to have a lot of OPPS this year.

I always liked him because of his K rates. The only knock on him is his high WHIP rate that could lead to more earned runs and more blown saves. That's not the case this year. It seems like he's located his pitches better this year.

He's had command issues in the past. His walks can get carried away. Off to a hot start, in the same manner that David Wright and Ryan Howard are only hitting slightly above the Mendoza line.

I think by this point he's top five.

As of right now he's the #1 closer is he not? He leads the league in saves, and has yet to give up a run. And his whip is like .60!!! SICK!! 8-o Not to mention his 21 K's in only 14.2 IP's!!

Moving forward I'd still rank him in the top 5!! Milwaukee is good, and he'll get plenty more saves opportunities. Obviously at some point he's gonna give up some runs, and probably blow a few saves, but I see no reason for him not to be a top 5 closer the rest of the year!!
