Possible after trade deadline closers???

Postby Lenny Dykstra » Mon Jun 15, 2009 3:40 pm

Hey all, I'm trying to be proactive in my league and want to grab closers in waiting for teams that are out of it, in anticipation of trades. One player I have in mind is Bell. He's arbitration eligible after this year and is a candidate for a trade. Who would be the guy that takes his spot? Also, do you guys know of any other closers in the last year of their contracts that have a chance to be traded, and their possible successors?

LaTroy Hawkins is a FA after this season and his having a great season. He could be traded to a team without a closer.

LaTroy Hawkins was the first name that came to mind. Houston is in a really tough division and might look to deal him.
