Lovely. Now we're arguing over what "baffled" means in the context of my quote. Look, I don't want this to devolve into something stupid. The intent of my OP was to say that while Papelbon is considered far and away baseball's best closer (as evidenced by the 37-6 landslide in vote #1 and their MDP's (49 for Paps, 62 for Nathan)), there is a strong case to be made for Nathan instead. He's just as consistent, and as I mentioned, has been slightly more valuable the past 2 years.

It's obvious that their values are very close, and it would be stupid to argue one over the other as an "absolutely clear cut" case. I was simply noting the discrepancy between their actual values and their perceived values. I like Nathan a little more, and I'd be more than happy to get him a full round later than Papelbon knowing there's a decent chance he outperforms him. If I ever felt the need to draft a closer in the 4th/5th round. Which I don't. :-b
