    Re: Closer for 2012

    I think LeCure would be a decent closer. Decent K rate. Low walk rate. Kind of quirky with the stache.

    For 2012, let Cordero go. LeCure to closer. Boxberger up.

    Bullpen: LeCure, Arrendondo, Bray, Chapman (if not starting), Boxberger, Ondrusek, Masset, Wood, etc........Not bad.

    It's pretty much the same as this year, minus one of our most effective pitchers (Cordero). Likely minus Chapman (I hope).

    Exepct similiar results I would guess.

    Maybe so, but $12M cheaper.

    I'd get rid of Masset -- I've had enough. And I don't like Wood in the pen.

    Ideally, whatever the closer situation, I'd want to add another top notch reliever from outside to go with LeCure, Chapman, Bray and one or two of Boxberger/Arrendondo/Ondrusek.
