Closer rumors

Postby plainyogurt » Thu Jul 30, 2009 8:04 am

I waited until this time of the year to see which closers are going to be traded...Therefore I dont have to trade for them..

If Bell is out is it Mujica or gregerson?
If sherill is out is it Johnson or beaz
If Qualls is out then Rauch?

Im already stashing Johnson...Who do you think will get the call if one is traded?

Sherrill did get traded today so Jim R. Johnson or Danys Baez to close now , i would think Baez would get first shot but i think they feel johnson has the better future .

and also chris ray is getting healthier
Orioles RP Chris Ray, on the DL with right biceps tendinitis, began a rehab assignment with Double-A Bowie on Friday. He pitched a perfect inning, recording two strikeouts. He was hitting 95 mph on the radar gun.

odds are teams will be after Baez before too long for a quality MR guy... i would think that JJ will have the first shot at closing and should hold on to it until/once Chris Ray is healthy as Ray has a ton more potential and skill as a closer, but is still in the minors rehabbing ... JJ-Short term... Ray-Long term... Baez still MR, for the Os or some other club...
