I completely agree with Mook on this, but I want to stress one thing that has been mentioned, but I think more emphasis needs to be placed on:

OAK is a closers paradise. Im not a fan of the As, but dont for a minute doubt their choice for closer. They have a reputation for hand picking them, and Rhodes is no exception. OAK will play tight games and Rhodes will have ample save opps. Do not doubt Billy Beane.

As for value, the easy answer of Dotel vs. Rhodes?
Hands down is Rhodes when you consider the 5 rd seperation.

I'd say Dotel will do the best of the "new" closers.

My sleeper pick is Justin Speier. I believe that he will win the closer's job in Toronto over Lopez. We'll see, but if he's hanging around toward the end of the draft, I'll snatch him. ;-)
Yes doctor, I am sick.

The Jays are saying that the job is open and that as many as 4 different players have a chance to win it - but for what it's worth the Jays have listed Speier as the closer on their official website and have Lopez listed as the set up man.

Oakland: 60 Save Opps last season
Houston: 64 Save Opps last season

I'm not sure how people come to the conclusion that Oakland is closer paradise...with all the stats already favouring Dotel I see no reason whatsoever for Rhodes to be better.

OK THATS my last post. Just had to straighten things out.

We'll just have to agree to disagree...................but I'm right. :-D

Finally, you're last post.

So I can say that I'm right and you are wrong.
You are so wrong.
You are the Howard Stern of Wrong (The King of all Wrong)
the Alan Iverson of Wrong (Wrong Answer)
the Wayne Gretzky of Wrong (The Great Wrong)
the Pete Rose of Wrong (Charlie Wrong?...ok so I'm running out of ideas)


Remember....that was your last post :-]

Hi, this is my first time here.

Just like to say that Mook, you're not right. You're more like a boxer.

You're Sugar Ray Wrong-inson

BTW: If the mods can check my IP, I'm just borrowing LBJackals computer for a minute...
