I like the closers in the order you already have them listed. In regards to where to draft them, I would confirm on some spring training performances for all of them and then draft them accordingly. Rivera and Nathan I would assume would be drafted among some of the established top tier closers(Soriano/Paps). Street isnt someone I target because of his long DL history.

I have them ranked in the order you have them written. Not sure what round I would take them but I would rank Rivera about a round or two higher than Nathan and then both of them a few rounds higher than Street. Even though I have Street on one of my teams he scares me because he can never stay healthy. He is dominant if he can stay healthy but he just can't.

please help

No idea on the rounds, but i'm probably the only one with this order.

Street, i like his ratios
Rivera, hasn't pitched in awhile, and has to decline sometime
Nathan i just don't trust anymore

I'd take a chance on Nathan for sure as a value pick I'd leave Mo and Street alone more than likely.

Street
Nathan
Rivera

I know Rivera has bucked the trend but he is 43 years old and only threw 9 innings last year. I don't trust any of these guys but I trust Rivera the least.
