Potention '09 closers

Postby skjelstrom » Sat Sep 20, 2008 1:37 pm

So many closer positions have changed this year due to injury and terrible performance.

Who do you think will stick with the position next year?

Who do you think will take over the closer role next year on teams where he is not in the closer role?

Who is likely to get hurt or taken over next year at the closer role?

Just some questions I thought I would throw out there, because it interested me with the all the different closers there was this year.

If Fuentes is out then Corpas will most likely close at the beginning but if he struggles then Taylor Buchholz will take over.

I'll throw Joey Devine and Chris Ray out there.

A lot of folks are saying Marmol has a good shot at closing in Chicago next season, but I don't buy it.

The only way Marmol closes is if Wood doesn't resign. He's got so many ties to the city, that I could see him coming back at a discounted price if need be.

Chris Ray in Baltimore, Arrendondo in LA, dunno if there really are any others. I'm not sure what Oakland will do but it will be a Ziegler/Street/Devine race.
