    Many can argue and say that K-Rod is the best closer in baseball with 37 saves, but you have to take into account that Mariano Rivera hasn't blown a save in 23 save opportunities. With a 1.06 ERA I would have to say that Mariano Rivera is still the best closer in baseball. Even though I think Mariano is the best closer, K-Rod and Papelbon are the next two closers on my list.

Brian Wilson is on my fantasy team, and he makes me cringe every time he manages to get called in. I think he has the potential to be great, but he is nowhere near that right now. We are talking about a guy who has a whip hovering at 1.5. That is terrible for a closer. He really needs to tighten is control. And give up less base hits. A 4.5 era and a 1.5 whip are nowhere remotely close to legitimate closer numbers.
    When the game is on the line he is at his best. His ERA gets jacked up in non save, get some work in, type outings. I remember one game thats a perfect example of this. A couple weeks ago against the Cubs. The Giants were winning 2-0 in the 9th. We called in Wilson. He loaded the bases and gave up a run with out recording an out. So the score was 2-1, no outs with the bases loaded. Then all of a sudden his fastabll went from 95mph to 100mph and he retired the the Cubs 1-2-3 after they loaded the bases.

    Hes not 100% lights out yet, but he is lights out when the game is bon the line. The only thing that maters at the end of the day is saves. WHIP, ERA, and all those other stats dont mean ****. It dosnt make a difference if he gives up 1 or 2 runs, as long as he gets the save.

    Lidge can't touch his 0.638 WHIP

    Well you might want to look past the saves because in terms of "stats" Rivera is untouchable this year, and this is coming from a Red Sox fan. This year I don't think anyone can deny how great Rivera has been when many people said he was done last year. If this list is about the greatest closers this year I go

    1.Rivera
    2.Soria
    3.Papelbon
    4.Nathan
    5.Street

    Papelbon is overrated, so is Lidge. It's got to be K-Rod, Rivera or Nathan.

    Papelbon's .90 WHIP>Nathan's .93 WHIP>K-Rod's 1.22 WHIP

    K-Rod is one of the most overated players in baseball.
