I'm ok with a closer by committee as long as they mean a committee of Bray and Coffey.

I would also give matt belisle a shot at it in spring training and see what he can do.

I think Coffey or Bray could be THE guy, but I have doubts about Belisle staying healthy enough to pitch an entire season.

I don't know about Belisle. I don't think his stuff moves as well as Bray and Coffey. I saw him pitch down in Dayton in a rehab assignment. He quickly got the first two outs then walked a couple and let the tying run score. Consequently, the Dragons scored to win it later, and everyone forgot about it. That being said, it was just a rehab assignment, but from what I've seen there and on TV he projects to be more like a journeyman long inning bullpenner then a closer.
