Couple things. You have Street's pic next to Devine's name. Also, I would give Kerry Wood a better grade than "volatile".

Possibly rank Bobby Howry above Alex Hinshaw
Huston Street ahead of Corpas
Boone Logan above Manny Acosta

1. Hinshaw is a young arm in the pen while Lowe is a lefty setup guy
2. corpas has been endorsed as the Col closer
3. Acosta got time last for SVs and he's ok to be #3 for right now

You're right he is, my bad. But I'm okay with Hinshaw being there for right now.
