    New closer?

    What do you think about Bud Norris being the new closer?

    I've definitely though about it. Problem with him is, just like Hunter (but to a worse extent), he is not good at getting lefties out at all.

    Honestly, I want to see what Yoon can do. If his shoulder is 100$, I would love to have him be the backup if Hunter falters. Obviiously, he has to adjust to MLB hitters, but I also want us to sign Andrew Bailey or Hanrahan as insurance. They will be back mid season.

    Opportunity to jump into Free Agency for a veteran who'd prefer to close and could have value come the trade deadline makes a ton of sense here. Kelvin Herrera comes to mind. 1 Yr $8.5M w/ a trade assignment bonus? Or Indians Cody Allen, Trevor Rosenthal. Player looking to rebuild value you can guarantee innings / patience to in high leverage role. Maybe include a Trade Assignment Bonus plus some incentives. Ideally in exchange for a 2020 Club Option which would only bolster value of potential bounce back reliever.

    Couple guys coming off injury that'd also make sense AJ Ramos & David Phelps. 2019 isn't about contending, so signing players who share mutual objectives (Innings, Rebuilding Value, patience) are ideal.
