No, Betancourt is a good closer.
Broxton is a maybe, and he won't be as good as Betancourt if he gets the job.

No deal. Broxton isn't a closer and even if he does get it, he isn't a very sure thing.

Stick with Betancourt and pass on the deal. It is not like Neil Walker is Pedroia either.

I like the Betancourt side. He's already a closer and he's better anyway. Neil Walker is better than Aviles but I dont think he's good enough to make up for the difference of a closing Betancourt vs a non closing Broxton.

I think that "a bird in the hand is better than 2 in the bush" saying is applicable here

I'd stick with Betancourt and Aviles. Aviles and Walker should be close in ranking this year.
