Sorry but a 30 some year old who has saved a total of 17 games doesn't seem to be the answer at closer.
The way the staff is lined up right now, I don't know if Olerud, Pokey Reese, Ozzie Smith and Brooks Robby around the horn would help that much.
And Speier had an ERA under 3 last year...in the AL East. I'm sure he would have been just fine at closer.
