1. Rhodes - On the fact that Billy Beane seems to have a magical touch with closers and because of all that foul ground.
2. Looper - He's in a good pitchers park, he's got a pretty good k/bb ratio, and the competition isn't stiff. He's got a 3.72 career era, so he's not that bad.
3. Nathan - He was good last year in SF, but he reached the majors late, he has a 4.94 cumulative minor league era, and I think that last year was a Hammond-like fluke.
4. Kolb - I think he'll lose the job by May. The guy has a 1.51 whip for his career. Sure, he was better last year. But so was Esteban Loaiza.
