Do you think he'll be a good closer for years to come though? Good closers that last a long time tend to be great closers. I wouldn't profile Fuentes as a great closer. I think it'd be smart for a team that's not headed to a postseason very soon to deal Fuentes, before he gets closer money.
That said they'd be dumb to deal Helton because they wouldn't get much for him other than fewer fans....and they'd be really stupid if they traded Atkins this low. But, I don't think that would ever happen.
