Re: Finding a Closer
One thing to remember about the importance of a closer, is that it really doesn't come into effect until later in the season.
Many playoff bound teams struggle with the back of their bullpen for a good part of the season, then get a closer at the deadline, or find one in their organization that is finally ready by the Aug/Sept. and do fine.
