Who Will Be The Marlins Closer Next Year?

I really hope they sign someone with a bit more experience. I had read that they were considering Alfonseca as the closer, but since he wasn't offered arbitration, I guess that idea is out the window.

 

Rudy Seanez wasn't offered arbitration by the Pads.. It'd be nice to see him come back and close for us... Give Resop and Bowyer some time to develop into closers... They have great arms, but I don't think they're ready.

Bowyer is ready. He could probably come in and just throw fastballs and save 30/37 or something, which isn't lights out, but it's good enough. If he can further develop his slider and/or changeup I think he's definitely ready. I would use him. Forget Seanez or anyone else. Let's just go with Bowyer for now. Might as well see what he has.

I'll second that. Use Resop & Bowyer as the 7th & 8th inning guys.

Don't count out Messenger, I think he has the "eye of the tiger" killer instincts to be a closer. He just has to pitch a little better, lol.

I thought I would mention this here because I was just astounded - fall on the floor in complete disbelief astounded - that Detroit is paying Todd Jones $11 million over two years!!

 

No wonder he declined arbitration. :D

I know thats really bad.

 

One bad year and you guys say he sucks.

For the price that we couuld probably get him it is definitely worth it. A guy who has experience closing and is looking for a 2nd chance to show that he still deserves to close in this league.
