So who do you think should start. I will throw out Rivera because he is the best closer of all time, without a doubt, and he may be having the best season of his career.
Plus he never dances around in his underwear soaking wet.
Cliff Lee is the starter. Additionally, I hate the Red Sox, but Papelbon's mentality is the one I want my closer to have, and is the mentality I brought to the mound in HS when I closed. He wants the ball to get the job done. I love it. I do however think he's an idiot, and for that matter Terry Francona would be, if Papelbon gets in a save situation. You turn to one of the most dominating closers in recent history and not the guy who's just got a couple years of experience, especially in that guy's home stadium.
