Coco Crisp
Carlos Ruiz
Johnny Damon
Yadier Molina
Travis Hafner
Luke Gregerson
Matt Capps
Clay Hensley
Jon Rauch
Octavio Dotel
Kosuke Fukudome
Todd Helton
Carlos Gomez
Ben Francisco
Xavier Nady
Adam Russell
Barry Zito
Justin Duchscherer

You might as well gamble on a Johnny Damon bounceback season.

Yeah a Damon pick here could work if you think you can get one more good year out of him. Also look at Gregerson...Padres setup man, gets a lot of K's and will help your ERA/WHIP.

I dont trust Damon. With Jennings in the minors he could be pushed out of a starting job.

I would probably go with Capps. he is either a lock for saves or a lock for most of the holds on the season. Nathan may be back, but he is coming back very fast and could suffer a set back allow Capps to take all the save chances on a steady team.

WHIR?

Dotel would be a decent option, as you already have Francisco. Smart money says one of them will be the closer to start the year at least.

I'm starting to think Capps too. Nathan is likely going to be kept on a leash. Between Putz and Capps, which would you prefer?
