Cordero is going to be a stud. Dotel looks like a good bet too.

Actually both Corderos should be good, assuming Chad gets the starting gig in Montreal.....or Puerto Rico.........or DC.......wherever they play.

Nathan is a good one as well, and watch out for David Riske in Cleveland. Wickman should lose the job about a month into the season.

I think Dotel will be the best followed by Nathan and Rhodes. Cordero was closing last year after Urbina was traded so he's not exactly new.

rhodes is undraftable but chacon gets the ;-D ? doesnt make sense to me. granted, rhodes' skills have gone down hill, but oakland doesnt have another option and billy beane has always picked good closers..

1) Isringhausen
2) Koch(his last year in oakland was one of the best years ever by a closer, i think he had 40+ saves and 10 wins
3) Foulke

everyone remembers chacon last year for tthe great starts he had in coors. i remember him for the inconsistency and the injury that ended his year. im not saying that chacon wont be a decent option, but to guarentee he will out preform the oakland closer is not very smart.
