What did you want him to do? There really aren't any closers sitting around in FA. You can't replace BJ Ryan, he was one of the best closers in the league last season.
A trade could happen eventually, but that would only happen if this team moves into somewhere near contention and becomes a buyer.
Not every RP is a closer. I said sure up the pen. What I meant by that was that they get some quality arms in the pen. Sure we would still have a problem in the last inning. But we are lacking decent arms in the pen. Like seriously Brian Tallet that guy stanks. We could of improved the pen without getting a proven closer.
I'll give you that...Brian Tallet is terrible. I think you may eventually see some improvements attempted in the pen.
