I don't like Cordero over Foulke

I would think:

Gagne
Rivera
Foulke
Lidge
Benitez


something like that order

One notable difference in my top 5:

Gagne
Lidge
Rivera
FRodriguez
Benitez

BTW; they show Crain as the main set-up guy for Nathan in Minnesota ... I thought that job was still held by Rincon/Romero, with Crain in long relief. Anyone know anything? (I'm in a holds league)

a little farther down the list it also has J.Julio as Baltimore's closer...I thought it was going to be BJ Ryan. Is this going to be something that is won during Training Camp if Julio isn't traded?

Well

On what basis would you move looper up?

Total saves have never been higher than 29

Plays for a bad team

ERA (even though IP isn't drastic) is a bit higher for a claser at 3.28

I can't see moving him above: Kolb (39 saves for a bad team), Shingo (19/20 saves once he got the job), or Hoffman. So that leaves guys like Percival (maybe), Dotel, and Izzy as the only possibilities.

I'd bring Mota up higher. They might not be giving him love because of the rough transition from be a set up go to THE guy recently. But I think he has the stuff and the mentality to do it. He did the job nicely the week that Benitez was out.

I agree

Mota is high on my radar, but is does trouble me he's 5-16 lifetime in save opportunities and no spring chicken at 31.
