    Him and his agent did a great job. I wouldn't pay him 50 million, but he's one of the best closers in the league and he certainly deserves to get paid like one. I would have called him dumb if he took a discount to come back here.

    Daniel Bard will be the closer. I don't see the Sox signing a major arm. Probably a few solid bullpen contributors.
    Here's to feeling good all the time.

    1. Jenks NO way in HELL

    2. Bard Not ready.

    3. Bell Yes

    4. Madson Deft Yes!!!

    5. K-Rod Ok If we cant get Bell or Madson
    With Heath Bell's velocity decline and very straight fastball he's not an ideal guy to bring into Boston. Go forward with Bard as the closer. Broxton a non A free agent coming off injury is a guy I'd strike on. He could be something similar to Jenks or he could be an upgrade.

    Trying to feed Jenks and Broxton could be a problem though. Especially if we cut the fried chicken out.
    Bring back MacDime

    I think that it's also worth considering that closers are usually more of a luxury to bottom half teams, but are more important for contending teams, since they could be the difference between making the playoffs or not, or success in the playoffs or not.

    i do like nathan. I think he could be had relatively cheap too since he was injured and came back to perform at an ok but not elite level. If the price is right then i'd pull the trigger

    That's a funny joke! Well done.

    He growls as he storms the country,
    A villain big and bold.
    And the trees all shake and quiver and quake,
    As he robs them of their gold.
