R Soriano (kinda obvious)
Clippard (might get SV chances with Storen struggling)
Hanrahan (closing - might be available late)
Venters (maybe part of closing committee)
Madson (might close with Lidge struggling)

Gregerson (may get shot at closing)
Koji Uehara (may get SV opps)
Octavio Dotel (may get SV opps)
G Balfour (may get some SV opps if Bailey's arm acts up)

Not sure I'd target them, but they should be available and may suffice

Sean Marshall
Takashi Saito

Betancourt (COL might be a bad thing for his ratios)
Nick Masset
Joba the Hutt
Daniel Bard
Mike Adams

Aroldis Chapman - 12.8 K/9 in limited innings last year but I wouldn't expect much of a drop-off, if any (11.8 in AAA). They're probably going to try and stretch him out in '11 so they can possibly move him into a starter role in '12 (may be future closer too)....so I'd say you're going to see 80+ innings out of him with a ton of Ks and a handful of wins and saves. They're also paying him a good bit of coin, so he'll be used. ;-D

With the probable role change of Neftali Feliz, Alexi Ogando needs to be on this list.
