Not much we didn't already know here, but I was pleasantly surprised with the relievers rankings. With so much being made of the relievers we lost this offseason (Howry, Riske, Rhodes), it is nice to know we have some good options ready or about ready to fill with Cabrera, Sipp and Perez. Also, Andrew Brown is another.
