Heroes of the Zeros: The Bullpen

As we continue our vote on the Reds All Decade Team, we look today at the bullpen.  The Reds bullpen was a strength in the early aughts, but it also had some very lean periods in the middle of the decade before rebounding a bit the last two seasons.  Below you will see the 28 relievers who managed to pitch 60 or more games out of the bullpen for the Reds between 2000 and 2009.  The survey below will have you choose a closer, 2 right-handed relievers, 2 left-handed relievers, and 2 other relievers of your choice.  Please be careful not to choose a pitcher for more than one spot as I will only count a single vote for that player. 

One note before you vote, I didn't feel like doing the extra work it would take to separate a pitcher's relief appearances from his starts, so some of the stats below include starts as well as relief appearances.  This mainly only affects Danny Graves (30 GS), Chris Reitsma (53 GS), and Matt Belisle (43 GS) with a couple other pitchers having a handful of starts in their numbers.  Please try to take that into account when considering a player as best you can.  Voting can be done after the jump.
