Just wondering who would you like to see closing Reds games in 2008?
It would be asking alot to expect Weathers to be the closer again and repeat the numbers he put up this season. On the otherhand, Eddie Guardado might be worth a minor league invitation considering it looks like he isn't fully recovered this offseason.
Ideally if the Reds acquired a closer, they could push Burton and Weathers back in setup roles. Pitchers like Bray, Majewski, Coutlangus and McBeth would actually have to show they deserve middle relief roles instead of being thrown out there because of neccesity. At the same time the Reds could cut their losses with pitchers like Mike Stanton, who are past their prime.
