Top 5 guys to pick up who are not closing today, but ....

Postby pizzaboy76 » Thu Jul 14, 2011 9:24 am

Looking to put together a list of the top 5 guys not closing today, who will be closing by the end of the month. I know about the closers thread, but there is a lot to wade through there.

My thoughts.

1. Mike Adams - Bell gets traded away
2. Parnell (Assuming Izzy is the closer now) - Izzy either gets traded or just can't handle it.
3. Crow - Soria likely to be traded
4. Motte - Can Salas really keep up being the closer.
5 . Lots of options here - Nathan, Koji, Chapman

I think your top three is my top 3. Then I'd say Koji and Chapman, but not due to trades, but too many bad performances by Gregg and CoCo added up.
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)

I pretty much agree with your top 5 list. Too bad they are all already owned in my league.....

Izzy is not going to take over as the Mets closer. The franchise looks at Bobby Parnell as their closer of the future and is quite content with his 97-100 mph fastball.

Mike Adams likely to be traded as well, so don't bank on him.

1. Parnell
2. Mike Dunn (Leo Nunez, not Bell, is most likely to be traded)
3. Crow
4. Adams
5. Koji (because his ratios are fantastic)

As a Cards fan, I can tell you Motte won't be a closer anytime soon. everyone knows what's coming, fastballfastballfastballfastball. He doesn't really have a secondary pitch. Sanchez or Boggs would get another chance before Motte does, but I think Salas has it locked down.

Adams - Bell is gone.
Parnell - K-rod has been sent
Dunn - Nunez is gone
Crow - Soria is gone
Nathan - I think Capps is just one meltdown away from being yanked.

Latest reports suggest otherwise. Padres want an elite prospect in return, and that probably won't happen.

1. Adams
2. Parnell (although I think he's all but got the job now)
3. Dunn
4. Crow
5. Chapman (CoCo won't be back next year; might as well give Chapman a look)
