Heath Bell (finally?)
Arredondo
Devine
Jensen Lewis might keep his job.
Whatshisface from Tampa Bay --------- Morlan. I don't think Wheeler will get it.
Possibly Hoey.
Anyone with a pulse for Detroit.


Eric Gagne will get at least one save for someone next year. Maybe Oakland will sign + rehab him and spin him for draft picks/a good player (even though we really don't need him).

Looks like Devine might already have the job in Oakland, based on yesterday with Ziegler pitching the 8th and Devine the 9th.

IF the Tigers dont sign anoyone i think Rodney will get 1st crack at it but after a few meltdowns it could be anyones guess (a healhy Zumaya ;-7 )

personally i like Ryan Perry as a darkhorse, maybe not out of the gate, but at some point

Could the Tigers become trading partners with the O's for Sherrill if it looks like Ray can come back as the closer?

Was Wilson's job until he got hurt, so don't count him out just yet. My guess as a Ranger fan is that the closer situation in Texas won't be decided and official until awhile into Spring Training.

I could see them giving Gagne another spin.
It definitely won't cost $10 mil this year. ;-D

Anyone think Carlos Villanueva could get a shot in Milwaukee next year? I just don't see Torres keeping the job next year, and I don't think they'll be a player for K-Rod or Fuentes since they have a couple aces of their own to worry about filling in the holes for. Any other closers or potential closers entering the free agent market the Brewers could look at, or any other players in house they could look at?
