What do you mean "there would be more of them"? I am not sure what you are trying to say. There are only 30 closer spots available, so at most, there are only 30 "available". And there are probably plenty of guys who could do better if given the chance, than some of the 30 guys who are "closers", but they are working as 7th and 8th inning guys in deep bullpens.
