i wouldnt count on any of those 3 guys as my no. 1 closer. but i have shacon on my roster for the fact that on yahoo he is listed as a starting pitcher - therfore i can use him in those SP spots when the two starters are on their days off. i see him as being a decent lower tier closer.....better than graves and koch.

I rank them:
Graves
Koch
Chacon

All third closers if at all if you ask me.

graves qualifying as sp only matters if you're going to play 6 relievers at a time (yahoo default settings)

what scares me about these 3 guys are the bad rotations hey have in front of them - therefore their save opportunities. if kolb was on another team i think he would be alot higher valued. if you look at it that way, i guess u have to say koch but he was really bad last year with the same staff.....

i know graves is probably the saftest bet but i actually think chacon has the most upside..

he was very good as a starter in colorado and i think he has the stuff to suceed as a closer their

id rank them :

chacon.. whose gonna take his job??.. turk wendell??? ..LOL
graves/koch .. neither of these guys are safe with ryan wagner and marte around

Graves is the man, steady as hell and experienced. Koch can go batty (witness last year's implosion). Chacon is interesting, that's why I pulled him out of the free agent bin. He's an x-factor.

I go

Chacon
Graves
Koch

Only because chacon seems to have the closer job pinned down a little better than the others.
I know the future!!!!!!!
