7. Joe Nathan, Twins, Crain's coming up, but not to close! Next in line: Juan Rincon

8. Armando Benitez, Marlins, Not his fault, but few chances this month; Horrible Billy Koch in middle relief doesn't help! Next in line: Nate Bump

9. Danny Graves, Reds, Is again ML leader in saves, rolling to 55? Next in line: Todd Jones

10. Francisco Cordero, Rangers, Love those saves when Rangers win by 3! Next in line: Jay Powell

17. Eddie Guardado, Mariners, Numbers skewed by Mariners never scoring. Next in line: Shigetoshi Hasegawa

18. Octavio Dotel, A's, A's go from last in this file, to 18th. But Dotel is struggling!! Next in line: Jim Mecir

19. Troy Percival, Angels, Be cautious here, hold K-Rod, too, because the Angels might! Next in line: Francisco Rodriguez

20. Matt Herges, Giants, Having a fine June, talk of Urbina coming not rampant now! Next in line: Felix Rodriguez

21. LaTroy Hawkins, Cubs, Looks like he's safe to keep this job rest of 2004 Kyle Farnsworth

27. Shawn Chacon, Rockies Pitching better, still hard to trust him! Next in line: Steve Reed

28. David Riske, Indians, Still very erratic, and should lose job at some point, maybe to Bob Wickman Next in line: Jose Jimenez (this post was originally written about Jimenez. But it counts for Riske too)

29. Mike Koplove, D-backs, No save chances in first week on job; Carlos Pena walk-off slam might still be going... Next in line: Scott Service

30. Nate Field, Royals, Who knows? Could be him, but there's nothing to save; Shame, since Jeremy Affeldt was doing quite well! Next in line: Scott Sullivan

Who wrote that? Powell is not next in line, he's on the DL for crying out loud! 8-o

Not that it matters anyway. Cordero is the man! ;-D :-°

Good writeup, although I'd argue with the author on Tampa Bay. Baez is backed up by Colome, not Carter.

The Inside Pitch has Torres as next in line. I guess we can look at five different sites and get five different answers. Thanks for trying.
I'm going to take a small gamble and put in a buck faab on Torres.

I also hope this isn't a ranking order. I would put Kolkb in the top three or four. Foulke more in the middle. This is all based on THIS years performance not the past.
Also Urbinas back up Patterson is on the DL
