None of them really have a good chance of regaining the closer role. Madson has been LIGHTS OUT, Nathan has never been the same after returning from the DL, and Lyon was never a good closer even before his injury.

Lidge is most likely to regain his job. Nathan's seemingly been hurt all year and wasn't the closer from the get-go. Lyon doesn't have great stuff and I feel Melancon is the better closer anyway. So if you take one, make it Lidge, though none are especially solid.

None of them are solid adds, but Lidge has the best chance of actually getting the closer role.

This. But this being said I add Lyon and Nathan.
