Nathan's top 5 for me. He also has aruguably one of the best setup relievers in Rincon. Flash Gordon is probably the only setup guy I'd rate over Rincon. That's why I put him up at number 5 on my rankings.


Id take Rincon before I take a closer from the bottom of the barrel.

Rincon was very good last year, but he's 26 and this is his first good season :-? His K/BB and WHIP improved dramatically. Maybe it'll repeat, but I don't know if I'd trust him enough to take him over a closer like Baez or Affeldt. Probably not.

Where does Craine fit in. I was thinking he might take Rincon's place as their set up guy.
