Sadly, I own Rivera, that basically guarantee a bad 2nd half for him.

Sorry Yankee fans. I never have very good luck with closers(see: gagne.)

real life or fantasy baseball, o well ill do both...

Fantasy
1. K Rod (alittle biased because i have had him on my fantasy team since the end of 2002 when he blew up, even though he isnt getting as much save chances his numbers r insane and i put him over nathan because of his insane strikeouts and ratios)
2. Nathan (suprised me this year)
3. Lidge (if he comes anywhere near what he did last year he will be fine)
4. Chad Cordero (i hope he keeps this up all year, if he does he will pass Nathan, alittle biase too because i have him on my fantasy team also, as well at Hutson who isnt on this list but will be very shortly)
5. Rivera (doesnt get the strikeouts like he used to but is as good as a lock as there is for 40 plus saves, and an era under 2 or low 2)

Real Life

1. Rivera (i know he didnt prove it in the 2004 ALCS but he was heavily overworkded and one of his Blown Saves he came in with one out and a man on third so cant fault him there, no other pitcher has ever made a living off of one pitch, now imangine if he developed a change up.. Also look at his postseason era, no contest)
how did colon win the cy young??

the world is comming to an end...woody paige has a Hall of Fame vote
