Also Saito isn't getting any love, that guy has been dominant as well.

K-Rod
Wagner
Papelbon
Nathan
Rivera


How do you leave Hoffman off this list? Oh yeah cause you're a Mets fan.


if it's based on this years YTD production, i dont see how you can leave Francisco Cordero off the list. i guess i'd trade him straight up for any of those guys (not sure about Mo at this point) but dudes been lights out

In terms of real baseball....Papelbon is a top 5 closer....in Fantasy Baseball....not a chance.....I am a Papalbon owner in a weekly head to head league and have been disappointed. The most saves Papelbon will get in a week is two which doesn't bode well for a closer in my opinion. If he was used exclusively in save situations...he without a doubt would be top 5...maybe #1 with the way Boston is playing.

I wasn't thinking. You're absolutely right. Rivera shouldn't be on the list based on this year. Cordero shoudl though.

How is it east coast bias if both teams are on the east coast?

Or if you're talking about Morgan's quote that Papelbon is the best closer ever, then I don't think you hear much of what Morgan says that almost no one takes it seriously.

So who is the best closer in baseball right now? Well obviously it's Francisco Cordero.

21 Saves, 33 K's, 0.39 ERA. That's domination.


;-D thanks for being logical. I pretty much reflect his sediments. Paplebon is a very good closer but also he has asspirations of being a starter.

first of all paps not the greatest closer in the game. mariano river despite the poor numbers thus far is still the best closer in the league. pap has limited post season experience and was unable last year to be effective in the second half of the season due to fatigue. Game 7 of the world series with nobody out and the bases loaded in the 9th inning i want MO not papelbon

Rivera's a hall of famer, but he's no longer the top closer in the game. He's at the end of the line.

I let all these guys bet with their heart


I think there is a bit of an east coast bias in the media, but this is a bad example. No one took Damon ahead of Holliday.

In 59 appearances last year, Papelbon gave up earned runs in 6 of them. His ERA last year was under 1.00. Mariano, Nathan, K-Rod, Gagne and Hoffman have never done that... ever.

Where I personally think it's premature to call him the best closer in the game, it's certainly up for debate.
