Please feel free to rank or tier these MR's for me. :-]

I am not looking for Holds, this is for 5x5.
I am only looking at K's, ERA, Whip, W's, SV's

here we go:

Hawkins
Mota
Riske
Marte
Soriano
Valverde
K-Rod
Donnelly
Lidge
Williamson
Gordon

Thanks guys ;-D

Watch Donnelly and Soriano. If Percival falters, then Donnelly will most likely take over his job. Soriano may become a starter if one of Seattle's starters falters as well.

What he said, except I also like Lidge and Riske. I think Riske has a chance to be Clevelands closer when Wickman invariably goes down with an injury.

You picked some great set up dudes. And the replys were good, too. BUT(!!!) watch Valverde as Mantei is in front of him and he already is hurt.

Given that saves will be a key contribution here, I'd say Riske, Valverde, and Marte might go at the top of the list. If K's are what you want, then K-Rod, Soriano (if healthy), Lidge, Donnelly, and the forgotten man, Kyle Farnsworth should be up there. Mota and Gordon should be very strong in ERA and WHIP and decent in Ks, with maybe an edge to Gordon who would be more likely to get some save opportunities than Mota. Myleague includes holds, so you may want to adjust, but I have them as:

Lidge
Donnelly
Hawkins
Marte
Soriano
Gordon
Riske
Valverde
Farnsworth
Mota
K-Rod
Williamson

Soriano's low mostly because he's had an oblique problem and has not even pitched yet. Barring injuries he's be right up there with Lidge, IMO.

If its a keeper league, go with Soriano or Lidge. Lidge will close somewhere at some point, and I expect his stats to be lot better. He was overworked last year, and had a crappy second half, but they have a deeper pen now and he should be conditioned for a full season.
