Moylan's going down like a rock. Can't locate his fastball lately. Maybe hitters have been watching tape on him. I think he swoons.

Looks like Arizona might be interested:

Aug 25 Jack Magruder, of the East Valley Tribune, reports the Arizona Diamondbacks have not ruled out making a trade for Atlanta Braves CL Bob Wickman. The Braves have 10 days to trade, waive or release Wickman after designating him for assignment Friday, Aug. 24.

In the longterm, it's going to be Dotel, so ya'll that have room, might want to go grab Dotel. It's his job when he comes back.

Is this speculation or is it based on actual fact?

Speculation only. Nothing concrete yet. Dotel is out still so I highly doubt they'll just give him the closer role without getting a few games in. So Soriano should be the closer unless he blows a few saves opportunity.

As a Wickman owner my response is "Nooooooooooooo!"
