Rate these closers

I have 4 closers on my roster and can only start two each week. I would like to drop one for roster space. Who, if anyone, would you drop. Can anyone rate them best to worst ROS?

Casilla, Janssens, Valverde, Frieri

Thanks.

There was a "Closer Look" blog post not long ago that you should read for the answer. Its a great blog man, I read it every day - recommend you do too.

Janssens is up since then probably too...as Santos is done for the season...the guy is more of a set up guy..but he's one of the main reason's the Jay's are still even remotely in the Wild Card race...

Valverde is probably the worst pitcher out of the bunch...but he job security and somehow gets the job done...he hasn't had great opps for easy saves lately...has blown one save in past month...but Tigers have used him with leads above 3 runs at times...

Frieri blew a save recently...he has great closer stats...I've seen him pitch some games...can get in some trouble..but has the tools to get out of things too

looks like the Giants will be using a closer by committee...to me Casilla is the one to drop...then I'd be watching to see if either Casilla, Romo, Affeldt take the lead...I have my money on Affeldt...but he's the drop...just watch things

Frieri (20)

Next Tier:
Janssen (46)
Cassilla (28)

I'd move Janssen up about five spots since that closer look was before Santos was out for the year...
