What would the Mets do with Looper? This trade rumor doesn't make much sense. Baez might not be flashy, but he does get the job done.

I'd assume Baez would setup for Looper. I don't see it happening either, but stranger things have happened...

The Mets have also inquired about Urbina and several other possible additions to the bullpen. There are so many rumors out there right now who knows what to believe. Unless there is a three-team trade involving Cameron this one doesn't seem too likely.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

I don't think the answer to the original question matters. Whomever closes instead of Baez should sit on the FA list until they've really proven themselves. Inexperienced relievers who have never been a closer who play on a bad team are generally not very useful to your team.

i disagree with you here. let's say baez goes somewhere else...i'd certainly take a chance on colome or carter...you can't wait for them to prove they can close and then pick them up on the WW. i think it's better if you get colome or whoever is the new closer and leave him on your team...if he starts blowing SV, then you drop him. colome isn't that bad...good ERA and almost a K per IP. carter has some experience as a closer...he saved 26 games in 03...so i'd say they are alright...but that's not the point i'm trying to make. what i wanted to say is that if a set up man, even if he doesn't have great stats or isn't considered to be any good, gets a closer job you should grab him right away and don't wait to see how he's gonna pitch. it's likely that someone else in your league will take the chance and if he doesn't pitch well...it's alright...it's not like he's gonna kill your stats...but if he can hold himself in the closer role, then you'd be kicking yourself for not snagging him for the WW when you had the chance. even if you are not in need of a closer...you can always trade later...closer is a valuable asset in fantasy and certainly a onwer in your league will be looking for some more SVs.
