Yeah you can add League to the list. He was far from impressive in AA so I don't think he's in their plans for next season though. Maybe 2006.

Rietsma and Valverde.
[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
Never hearing a Yankee fan chant 1918 again...priceless. [/size]

I second Valverde. The Cubs will have someone new, Giants probably too. The Indians might persuade Wickman not to retire, or employ a lesson learned and open the purse strings for someone decent. Then there are the bottom feeders like Seattle, Colorado and Toronto who would probably prefer to bring someone in but will only do so if it is cheap. Finally there are the Braves--Smoltz has whined that he wants to start or is leaving, so that job will likely be open either way too, although they have what's his name in the minors who is supposed to be their closer of the future.

I didn't include Valverde because he isn't really a new closer. :-?
