Rating the 2nd tier closers

Moderator: Baseball Moderators

Postby Bobblehead » Tue Feb 15, 2005 12:53 pm

I have these RPs 6-11 in my rankings. I would love to have any of them on my team. They are not 2nd tier closers IMO. Here is how I have them:

Nathan
Benitez
Izzy
Foulke (will get a lot of saves but his WHIP & K's are not as good as some)
Hoffman
Cordero (good pitcher, bad team)

I agree that this year won't be as good as last couple - his skills will decline - just when?

My top tier includes KRod, Foulke, Gagne, Dotel, Wagner


I feel like Krod is an inury risk since he has been worked pretty hard in Winter Ball. As for Wagner, I have seen him going really late in some mock drafts, which is probably due to injury concerns as well. The only sure bets in this list are gagne and foulke (dotel could be traded...)
Yeah, I'm like being recruited by over
like 60 different gangs right now because of my incredible bow staff skills

Nathan
Hoffman
Foulke
Benitez
Cordero
Isringhausen

Who said Nathan wouldn't close all year? He was excellent all year and pretty sick in the playoffs too. Before that 3rd inning we were lookin pretty silly...

Foulke
Nathan

Isringhausen
Benitez
Hoffman

Although I am a Red Sox fan and several of you may take this as a bised ranking I d believe Foulke is the best out of those listed here. Why are you giving that other Sox fan so much greif for mentioning Foulke with the top closers in the league. No his save total wasn't what it was 2 years ago but his ERA and preformance in the postseason certaintly makes him one of the top teir closeres in the game.

Thanks to those who responded with their rankings. And I don't really care if anyone disagrees about my labeling them 1st tier or 2nd. I mean someone is going to waste their time telling me that the 2nd tier starts after 10??? If I wanted to know how you ranked your top 10 overall I would have asked for it. JOE
