Re: My take on the free agents.
Dotel had TJ surgery. I wouldn't assume he'll never be right again just because his supposedly way ahead of schedule, miraculous recovery, looks more like the usual, full year to regain command, recovery. Unless there was something else?
I'm guessing that Bradford and Speier will both be offered arbitration and therefore would cost a draft pick, as well as really good multi-year contracts for set-up guys. As closing options, it might make it more worth it.
