I'd rank them like this..

Graves - off to a nice start, excells in closer role
Mesa - also off to a nice start. maybe he has turned it around?
Herges - will keep job until Nenn is back.
Leskanic - will only hold the job until MacDougal is back

Koch - horrible. would rather punt saves than run him out there.

Herges (i think he will do well and keep his job. Nen will continue to be hurt)


Koch. he is that bad.

I'd say Herges.

I'm biased, having vowed to never have Jose Mesa on my team. Ever.

Graves - better than Mesa, will not lose Closer job unless traded, which is a possibility. Wagner is the future, not the present

Mesa - the most job security and has good career #'s.

Herges - it all depends on Nenn, if I knew if Nenn was done for the year, Herges would be 1st on this list, in my opinion.

Koch - will keep job if he pitches well, but he's not that great and the Sox have options

Leskanic - won't be closing for long

That's exactly how I see it, too (minus the Leskanic prediction, which still seems completely unclear).

People hate Koch, and I can understand why. But although he's at the bottom of that list I wouldn't be too surprised if he turned it around this year.
