Sounds like Walt would like to make this move. But it also sounds like he'd like to get the closer first (Huston Street?). That's smart.
But I suspect that if Walt actually pays for said closer -- in players or cash -- we'll get a hue and cry from those on this thread who claim they don't give short-shrift to the pen.
I agree. I just hope paying for a closer doesn't prevent them from addressing the OF.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
