    Bullpen setup for 2013 minus chapman?

    If chapman goes to the rotation...

    than I wouldn't mind this set up

    Long Man:
    -Alfredo Simon
    -Sam Lecure

    7th Inning Man:
    -Sean Marshall/Nick Masset

    8th Inning Man:
    -John Broxton

    -J.J Hoover

    JJ Hoover had a really solid year last year.

    1-0, with a 2.05 ERA, and a 0.97 WHIP. Only 24 years old, and when closing last year had a real sense of "poise" and fearlessness in him. Think he could do a mighty find job next year if Chapman is heading to the rotation...

    If not though...how do you set up the bullpen staff?

    Hoover, Broxton, Marshall, Masset (if he fully recovers back to form), and Chapman are all important pieces. Obviously chapman closes, but what to do with the 7th and 8th inning?

    I would like to say that I am looking forwardto any decision that KEEPS Chapman in the closer role. Way to valuable in that role. I know this puts Leake potentially in the rotation, but he should be trade bait to geta better peice.

    Chapman is so valuable as a closer!!! Keep him there. I just see shoulder problems as a starter!! (a la Scott Williamson ???)
    Bring on 2018! #%?*!

    If I had my druthers, it'd be Marshall as the closer, Hoover as setup. But Broxton got paid, he's "done it before." So he will be closer. And Marshall will probably be the setup guy.
