    Best closer in the game?

    My vote goes to Jonathan Papelbon

    I'm assuming you mean right now, in which case it's Brad Lidge.

    Brad Lidge. 20 of 20 saves, under 1 ERA. He plays in the smallest ballpark in the whole MLB.

    Between K-ROD and his 37 saves, yes 37! and Mariano Rivera

    It has to be K-Rod, I cant imagine anyone else having 37 saves so early...Lidge being close second, great pickup by Phillies

    Lidge. Even though KRod is going to end up with 50+ saves, he gets a lot more save opprotunities. Pitching wise, Lidge is better.

    The only thing Krod has over Mo is saves. Its not that Mo doesnt pick up saves hes 23 for 23 in save oppurtunites, its just that he hasnt had as many oppurtunites. Other then that Mo leads K rod in every statistical category, K's, lower BAA( Moe has a .064 bAA!!!!), less walks, save percentage, ERA, WHIP.

    *I only did this for Krod and Moe, because i already looked up the info the other day.

    As much as i love Mariano and think he's still the best, i fear Papelbon. He does make stupid faces but there's no denying that he's an incredible closer.

    And as for Rivera, last year when i was watching him pitch i was thinking to myself that he was on his way out, but with the way he's pitching this year, he seems like he's got another couple of years possibly, which is good because it's going to be hard for the Yankees to replace him.

    1. Rivera
    2. Papelbon
    3. K-Rod
    4. Nathan
    5. Ryan

    As a Blue Jay fan, I get the "delight" of seeing Rivera several times a year. When he comes into the game, I know the game is over. I dont get that definite of a feeling with any other closer. The next closest would be Papelbon.
