If the Pirates trade Jose Mesa as rumored who would close? Saloman Torres have first shot?

who cares? its not like they're going to be getting any saves...so what's it matter?
Seeing as the Braves have won 12 division titles in a row, does that mean that soon they are going to have to start making columns as well???

I heard Torres would be getting a chance but I don't expect much at all from him.

Mesa has 18 saves this year (19 chances i believe)...dealing away a closer doesnt effect the number of save opportunities a team has. Every team produces save opportunities..bad teams obviously lose more, but when they do win it is generally by a lesser margin of victory (or higher chance for a save opportunity).

My guess if the traded Mesa...they would end up in a CBC...with Torres and Meadows getting most of the looks... :-?

Where is Mesa been rumored to be traded? I have him, and I hope he stills closes. Hes been fantastic this year. For all you Mesa doubters, I think hes proved you wrong.
