LBJ interesting that you have wrote page after page about Rhodes as bust of year, yet you rank him 2nd? Has the Cafe persuaded you?
Yeah it hurt me to rank him 2nd
but you can't ignore the lack of competition in Oakland. And other than Rhodes and Nathan, there aren't any good closers on that list. Graves should actually be pretty good though, and might be under-rated. Wagner waiting in the wings deters me from thinking too highly of him though. Yet I have no idea why he was removed from the closer role after averaging 30+ saves per year in 4 straight seasons with a good ERA and WHIP. Were their starters THAT bad? Well, maybe. I guess you can't save games if you can't get a lead.
