I went with Rivera here...Lidge turned in a nice year in '08 but 35 walks in 69 innings? Not what I want from my closer. Rivera only had 6 walks in 70 innings for a 0.8 BB/9. Papelbon was next at 1.0/9. Yes Rivera is getting old(er) and yes he is an injuy risk, but I still take him ahead of Lidge and K-Rod and in a draft.
